Ingredients

Scale
  • ⅓ cup dry sparkling wine
  • ⅓ cup fresh squeezed orange juice (or store-bought “Not From Concentrate” OJ, best to get the kind without pulp)
  • 1 Tbsp. of grenadine
  • 1 Tbsp. of fresh squeezed lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Pour the sparkling wine into a port glass or a small wine glass.
  2. Add the orange juice and then the grenadine and the lemon. The grenadine settles on the bottom of the drink making for a nice striping-sunset effect. Serve it with a stir stick so that people will know to stir the red sweetness up from the bottom to balance out the lemon.
