The classic French 75, with a rosy twist.
'sparkling wine cocktail' on Serious Eats
Grapefruit, with its slightly bitter punch, used to throw me for a loop, but lately I've taken a real liking to it, embracing the pungent flavor. One of the ways I eased into is by pairing it with another strong flavor like ginger. Together this duo is hard to beat—spicy, citrusy and bright. But turn the duo into a trio by adding a little bubbly over top, and you've got yourself a cocktail that will keep you on your toes.
This is a delicious way to enjoy Lillet blanc: topped with sparkling wine and a few dashes of grapefruit bitters.
