Making Springtime Sparkle

Springtime calls for lilting cocktails with fruited flavors of the season that tickle at the nose and linger on the taste buds. The Springtime Martini pegs the name right on, but comes across with wisps of perfume in the finish. While fresh juice usually wins out for better cocktails, this one would perhaps taste better with Peach Liqueur in place of the peach nectar.

2 ounces Vodka

1/2 ounce Peach Nectar

1/4 ounce Fresh Lime Juice

1 ounce NUVO Sparkling Liqueur

Place vodka and juices in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill. Strain into chilled martini glass. Top with chilled NUVO Sparkling Liqueur.

NUVO Sparkling Liqueur is vodka infused with French sparkling wine, raspberry, peach and strawberry fruits. The wine is predominantly chardonnay with a touch of pinot noir. NUVO is best served chilled. Since it is sparkling liqueur, it will go flat if not consumed within 18 to 24 hours. Best if consumed within shorter time frame.
