Take your holiday gatherings to the next level this season with The Ruby Wonderland Cocktail! It boasts a bit of sweetness, some slightly tart notes, and a bubbly finish. This mixed drink incorporates the perfect ingredients for a holiday cocktail, especially if you’re a lover of sparkling wine.
Plus, my favorite part of this sparkling wine cocktail is the Domaine Carneros Brut! This varietal is the newest release of their Estate Brut Cuvée which features light notes of poached pear, crisp apple, yuzu, and honeydew melon. This exclusive sparkling wine has been aged to perfection and is ready to be enjoyed right in time for the holidays!
Let’s make the Ruby Wonderland Cocktail! Start by adding the grapefruit juice, amaretto, orange bitters, and ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake the cocktail tin until the outside is chilled. Next, strain the cocktail mixture into a coupe glass, and top with Domaine Carneros Brut. Add the orange blossom cocktail cube to the glass. If desired, garnish with a grapefruit slice, rosemary, and star anise.
For this cocktail, I used Domaine Carneros Brut – the newest release of their Estate Brut Cuvée features notes of poached pear, crisp apple, yuzu, honeydew melon, and pie crust with a toasty finish that lingers on the palate. This winery exclusive has been aged to perfection yet will enjoy additional evolution in the cellar over the next decade.

Located in Napa Valley and sprawling into Sonoma County, California where their Estate Vineyards now total 400 acres dedicated to growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes.
