The perfect non-alcoholic brunch cocktail made with fruity-spiced Caribbean Sorrel (aka hibiscus) and sparkling alcohol-free wine. It's delicious in warm weather but also makes a great holiday drink with the warming spice notes from Sorrel, which is traditionally served at Christmastime.
This is a twist on classic French Kir Royale made with Cassis (black currant) liqueur and Champagne.
Bonus: both ingredients are made by women!
- 1 oz (2 tbs) Brooklyn Brewed Sorrel
- 4 oz (1/2 cup) Noughty Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Chardonnay
Pour Sorrel into a coupe or flute glass and top with chilled Noughty, or other sparkling wine. Pour slowly to avoid overflow!
Make it a low-alcohol cocktail by using alcoholic sparkling wine instead. I recommend something dry like an entry-level Champagne, French Crémant or domestic US sparkling. Avoid Prosecco or Moscato, the sweetness of the Sorrel is plenty for this cocktail.
