Written by: David Edessa

Ingredients:

  • 3 oz. Jelly Bean Infused Vodka (recipe below)
  • 1 oz. Triple Sec
  • ½ oz. Sparkling Wine Brut
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • Cocktail Shaker

Glass Preparation:

Add sugar along the rim of the martini glass. To do this, place blue curacao (blue), grenadine (red), or lime juice (white) on a flat plate (depending on the color of the rim you wish to create) then dip the glass into the liquid to wet the rim. Place powdered sugar on a flat plate or surface then rim the wet rim glass into sugar and coat the rim. Place rimmed prepared martini glasses in the freezer to chill.

Instructions:

Put all liquid ingredients and squeeze a lemon wedge into a cocktail shaker half filled with ice and shake vigorously and strain into chilled prepped martini glasses. Float on top of glass the sparkling wine.
