Blood Orange Sparkler

A slightly bitter cocktail with blood orange juice mixed with bubbly given to us by author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone..

Tips for Christmas


  1. 1Set blood orange on a cutting board and, using a sharp knife, cut off and discard ends. Slice rind and white pith off fruit using a gentle downward sawing motion, cutting away as little flesh as possible. Discard rind.
  2. 2Slice fruit into 1/2-inch pieces. Divide pieces evenly among the wineglasses.
  3. 3Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon sugar atop orange slices in each glass and muddle together to extract juice. Add 1/2 teaspoon vermouth to each glass and stir.
  4. 4Divide sparkling wine among the glasses, stir, and serve.
