Pineapple Mom-osa
Make a splash this Mother's Day with a tropical twist on the classic mimosa. Any sparkling will work, but we suggest a dry, yet slightly sweeter spumante.

Menning Mimosa
Everyone loves the classic brunch cocktail, Mimosa! You can use a French Cremant, an Italian Prosecco -- even a delicious Spanish Cava. We like to keep it on the dry side of sparkling.

Lemon Sorbet Cocktail

Summer, sorbet, sparkling -- they just go great together. Enjoy a dry Spanish Cava with this limoncello-inspired cocktail that is far easier to make than the Italian liqueur. Try a smaller scoop in your glass for the Evelyn Waugh-inspired Champagne Cocktail.
