The Golden Globes are this weekend, and while we may not have a hair and makeup team to doll us up or a gorgeous gown to swan around in, we can enjoy the cocktail stars will be sipping–and do it without Spanx on.
Moët Ruby Red
1 oz vodka
3/4 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
3/4 oz tarragon-raspberry shrub
2 1/2 oz sparkling wine
Combine vodka, lemon and shrub in a shaker with ice; shake for 10 to 15 seconds. Strain into a chilled stemmed glass. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with a spring of tarragon and a long, spiraled lemon peel.
Notes: Sparkling, pretty, and potent–I can hardly imagine anything better! The Golden Globes and Moët have a long relationship, but don't be afraid to substitute the Champagne for your favorite (less expensive) sparkling wine. To make the shrub, combine 2 cups crushed raspberries, 2 cups apple cider vinegar, 4 cups cane sugar, the peel of one lemon and 4 sprigs of tarragon in a sauce pot. Bring ingredients to a simmer and cook until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool before using. Cheers!
