What’s New Year’s Eve without a sparkly cocktail? Although I know folks are firmly on either side of the fence about them. ‘Tis the season, I say.
Just about everyone loves a little (or perhaps a lot, God love ’em) bubbly this time of year. Give your glasses of sparkling wine, Cava, Prosecco, Asti, Crémant, Champagne (the choices really are almost endless, really), a little extra glee with a splash of Middle West Spirits‘ OYO Stone Fruit. This year’s seasonal vodka is kissed with sweetness from Montmorency cherries, peaches, apricots and loveliness. I think it pairs deliciously with an Asti (which deserves another look; it’s not what it used to be) and is perhaps even better garnished with a homemade maraschino.
Cheers to another great year!
OYO Stone Fruit Sparkler, makes one
1.5 oz Stone Fruit Vodka, chilled
1 dash orange bitters (Fee Brothers are good)
5 oz sparkling wine
In a champagne saucer or flute, combine the vodka, bitters and top with the sparkling wine. Imbibe.

Alex received a bottle of Stone Fruit Vodka for Xmas and I’m totally in love with it. Mixing with bubbly is a great idea!
I keep wanting to do an old fashioned champagne cocktail. This looks like a better alternative!
I might try this. I’m not sure if I love the stone fruit the way I like the honey vanilla bean. It’s rather thick to me. I used it to help crust over a rack of lamb which was really good, but I haven’t figured out a good drink. I’ll try this though, it might be what I’m looking for.
I agree with the Honey Vanilla. That’s just lovely. I like your rack of lamb idea! Very creative!
Awesome! And I love Marina and the Diamonds!
