 Made this for a COW I was hosting before Christmas.  We all fell in love (and I had a bunch of egg yokes left to make custard!).  I decided to serve this for family Christmas cocktails.

As the ladies of COW know, I have a new found love for all things PROSSECO. So, since the French 75 has been done, I scoured the internets for a “Martha” friendly champagne cocktail and discovered the Ginger Sparkler. After getting trashed at Christmas on the Ginger Fizz, I knew this would be delic!

Ingredients:

  1. 4 tbs. Grated Fresh Ginger (peeled)
  2. 1 cup Sugar
  3. 1 cup Water
  4. Vodka or Gin
  5. 1 Bottle (750ml) Dry Sparkling Wine (chilled)

Make ginger simple syrup*. In an tall 8 oz. glass combine 1oz. ginger simple syrup with 1 – 1.5 oz. Vodka/Gin. Fill the rest of the glass with Sparkling wine. Drink. Repeat.

NB–> In summer months, ice cubes are necessary.

*Ginger Simple Syrup
Heat  water and sugar over the stove until the mixture boils. Remove from heat and add grated ginger. Let this stand for 0.5 to 1 hour. Sieve out the grated ginger and chill until its drinking time!
