Crimson & Clover Sparkler
This version has it all: bubbles, warm spice, tart fruit, and a fanciful sugar rim.
For the coconut clove sugar:
¼ cup coconut sugar
½ teaspoon ground cloves
1 grapefruit wedge
For the cocktail:
1½ ounces Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit & Rose
2 ounces pomegranate juice
¾ ounce fresh grapefruit juice
pinch of ground cloves
1 ounce Fever Tree soda water
1. First make the coconut clove sugar: Simply combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Then pour out onto a shallow plate. Use the grapefruit wedge to rim your glass, then dip the rim in the coconut clove sugar. Add ice to the glass and set aside.
2. Next combine the Ketel One Botanical, pomegranate juice, grapefruit juice, and pinch of ground cloves in a shaker with ice. Shake, then pour through a sieve into the sugar-rimmed glass. Finish with the soda water and a sprinkle of pomegranate seeds.
