Blood Orange Basil Sparkling Rosé Cocktail


  • 1 cup torn basil leaves
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey


In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring basil, water, and honey to a simmer. Remove from heat and let basil leaves steep for 1 hour. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove basil leaves. Refrigerate to chill.


  • 1/4 cup chopped strawberries
  • 1/2 ounce blood orange juice
  • 1 ounce vodka
  • 1/2 - 1 ounce basil simple syrup
  • Chilled Domaine Carneros Brut Rosé


Begin by adding strawberries to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler or long wooden spoon to crush the strawberries until the juices are released. Add 1/2 ounce of blood orange juice, 1 ounce vodka, and 1/2 to 1 ounce of basil simple syrup. Fill the cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. Strain into a flute and top with sparkling Brut Rosé.

Blackberry Sparkler Cocktail



In a small saucepan, bring blackberries, water, and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the blackberries are soft and the simple syrup has turned to a bright pink/redish color.

Remove from heat, drain blackberries, and allow to cool. This step can be done well in advance, as the syrup will keep for at least one week in the refrigerator.

Begin by adding 1 ounce of gin followed by 1-1.5 ounces of homemade blackberry simple syrup to each glass. Next drop two blackberries in each glass. Fill the rest of the glass with Estate Brut sparkling wine and enjoy!
