Here’s an adaptation of a bubbly celebration drink from American mixology pioneer Dale DeGroff. It combines añejo tequila, blood orange juice, aromatic Clément Créole Shrubb liqueur, and a top-up with sparkling rosé. (In the original, DeGroff calls for fabulously expensive Louis Roederer Cristal Brut Rosé Champagne, which accounts for the name—the name doesn’t change, though, if you use a sparkler that’s easier on the budget).

What to buy: Blood orange juice is available at well-stocked grocery stores and online. Clément Créole Shrubb liqueur, from Martinique, is made up of a blend of rums flavored with spices and orange. It can be found at specialty liquor stores.

We featured this recipe in our Drinks Around the World for New Year’s Eve story.
