Sparkler Cocktail

Amy Wisniewski from's newsletter just sent me an email with the most gorgeous idea for a signature drink for your wedding.  (Also great for wedding showers!) It's a citrus and ginger cocktail that is made from Domaine de Canton (a ginger flavored liqueur found in specialty liquor stores (see previous online link) called a Kumquat Sparkler. 

The recipe below is for only 1 drink, so you'll need to extrapolate it out to fit your numbers.  It's called a Kumquat Sparkler, but don't let the unusual fruit put you off--it's too pretty NOT to make.  And I promise you, you'll enjoy the kumquats. 

Kumquat Cocktail
Ingredients for 1 drink

INGREDIENTS5 ounces dry sparkling wine
1/2 ounce ginger liqueur
2 kumquats, halved crosswise


Combine the sparkling wine and ginger liqueur in a champagne flute. Squeeze the kumquat halves into the glass and then drop them into the drink to serve. 

How easy could it be?  Cut up your fruit ahead of time and pour.  No fancy shaking or stirring that would hold up the bartender, these are literally cut, measure and add the sparkling wine.  So simple, but so so good! 

Take a chance.  Try it this weekend.  That's the best part of having a signature drink, trying all the possible, probable combinations ahead of time!
