I recently began to try drinks with sparkling wine. When a drink asks for champagne, I use sparkling wine. This is from Rachael Ray.

Ingredients Nutrition

I enjoyed this for a change of pace, but did find it very sweet.
I used a sparkling wine, but think next time I will use a Brut instead of Curvee, I think with Brut it may be not as sweet.
I used fresh cherry juice and followed as per recipe ~ Although I found it sweet others did not find it too sweet at all. They loved it sweeter.
Thanks Boomette great simple cocktail that was enjoyed by all.

I really enjoyed this cocktail. It was refreshing and offered just the right blend of cherry and lemon to round out the fruity (Asti Spumante) champagne I used. I will serve this cocktail in place of mimosa, which is what I usually serve during our brunch celebrations.

Oh yum and good! I made this for New Years Eve night. Probably why my picture didn't turn out so great :) It was very sweet, but still very good. I cut mine with a dash of cranberry juice. Made and Reviewed for Bevy Tag - Thanks! :)
