Brighten your day with bubbles!
80 seriously simple cocktail recipes for everyone from award-winning wine writer and BBC One drinks expert, Olly Smith.
Every drink is united by its unique and exciting use of sparkles with fun flavours for all occasions. Whether it’s a small work victory, drinks before hitting the town, a big celebration, or simply, ‘just because’, you’ll find the perfect pop to mark the moment here.
Champagne, cava, cider, beer, soda or kombucha; the joy is in the fizz, with plenty of booze-free bubbles alongside the classics to suit all tastes.
From the delicate elderflower and orange blossom Free Fizz to the dangerously drinkable, disco-friendly Rebujito – or perhaps the sparkling wine and rhubarb English Spark takes your fancy – there’s a moreish mocktail or a potent punch for everyone.
Enjoy delightfully easy cocktails at any time; simply add sparkles!
