I’ll keep this breif; Everyone likes Sparkling Rosé. You can quote me on that. It’s a universal fact and I’m not going to debate it. So here’s a cocktail for when you want something a little heavier after a long day, but you still want to sip something refreshing. This cocktail is made with 100% Organic Pomegranate juice, St. Elder Elderflower, and the all time crowd pleaser going on forever - Sparkling Rosé. It was a weekly special at DanDan Rittenhouse (where I tend bar) a few weeks back when it first started to get hot and I thought, why not share it here. File this under perfect drinks for porch hangs.

  • Jigger for measuring
  • Shaker Tins for shaking
  • Strainer for straining
