I rarely use sparking wine as a mixer to make cocktails. Generally, I simply enjoy a glass of sparkling wine with appetizers or a meal. To be honest, it just doesn’t occur to me to use sparkling wine to make a cocktail. So, a recent invitation to sample Cinzano Prosecco DOC and Cinzano Asti DOCG along with a cocktail kit caused me to pause for a minute and consider the potential. Maybe I should explore the possibility. I replied yes to the offer of tasting samples and before I knew it I was playing mixologist.
