Persephone’s Drinks Cabinet | Stone Fruit Sparkler

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 SpiritsOYO 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.

Playlist included Shampain, by Marina and the Diamonds.

  1. 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.
