Cinzano Sparkling Cocktail

In a wineglass put 1 lump of Sugar, 2 dashes of Angostura, 1 dash of Curacao (Brizard Orange Curacao), 1 teaspoonful of Brandy (generous teaspoon Pierre Ferrand Ambre), 1 lump of ice (uh, oops, forgot).

Fill up with Cinzano Brut (Rotari Brut Rose), stir slightly, and squeeze lemon peel on top.

As far as I can tell, Cinzano Brut either no longer exists, or has been renamed. There are a few Cinzano sparkling wines imported into the US; but, the only one I could find was the Asti. I imagine that is a long way from the Brut, so substituted the Rotari.

For the price (~$9), it is really a pretty good sparkling wine.

Anyway, another perfectly delicious sparkling wine cocktail.

This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.

One thought on “Cinzano Sparkling Cocktail

  1. We used to drink Cinzano Brut sparkling wine many years ago, and it was delightful. It came in a bottle with a very round bottom (for lack of a better word). It was a marvelous wine but haven’t seen it in years. Does it still exist, possibly, but not shipped to USA?

    Thanks.
