Lambrusco Rosemary Fizz

We have been dreaming so hard about Italy lately. We have a couple trips planned to the boot this year, both northern and southern, and even though we have other trips planned, it is Italy that has our hearts. 

And speaking of hearts, how about the so-called, Most Romantic Drink in the World. I'm not sure if it's true, but this herbal and aromatic sparkler is easy to make and heaven to drink. A friend of ours brought over the ingredients to a brunch at Casa Nolandia, and all three of us were Mediterranean dreaming.

  • 1 orange wheel
  • 3-4 fresh rosemary leaves
  • 3/4 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 4 ounces sparkling Lambrusco
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
Muddle orange wheel and rosemary leaves in the bottom of mixing glass. Add Grand Marnier and shake with ice. Strain into a champagne coupe. Top with Lambrusco. Garnish with the sprig of fresh rosemary.

So, drop some trousers, put on some Cole Porter, get your make-out lips ready and muddle you some orange and rosemary. Here's hoping that Lambrusco is enough Italian loving to get you through that Mediterranean fever.
