Evolution Sparkling wine cocktail CRIMSON FIZZ


When it comes to celebrating, nothing beats a glass of sparkling wine – except for a sparkling wine cocktail. Simply add a little extra sizzle, sophistication and sparkle to your cocktail with a splash of lively sparkling wine. With Valentine’s Day less than two weeks out, we’re romanticizing our Evolution Sparkling as an ingredient in a festive cocktail that will be featured at our upcoming Valentine’s Night Market.

Beverage Consultant Tommy Klus has crafted this ingenious recipe for our Valentine’s Night Market where we’ll be mixing up Crimson Fizz, a refreshing concoction that is bursting with froth and essence featuring our very own Evolution Sparkling. With an expert past of curating spirit collections for Multnomah Whisky Library and a cocktail program at Kask in Portland, Oregon, Tommy can whip up any fashion of spirits and more with vision and inventiveness. In this particular Evolution Sparkling cocktail he creates a balance of intrinsic subtlety and zippy features with fresh citrus and tart fruit characters infused with botanical bitters and spice.
