Simple Sparkling Berry Cocktail Recipe

Looking to elevate your weekend dinner party with a stellar berry cocktail recipe? Get ready to impress your guests with our tantalizing Sparkling Berry Cocktail, a harmonious blend of mixed berries, zesty lemon, and the captivating sparkle of Lucia Sparkling Blanc from Shale Ridge. 


  • Mixed berries: A medley of fresh berries, such as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries.
  • Vodka: It provides the alcoholic base for the cocktail and its high alcohol content, making it an essential component in creating a balanced and spirited drink.
  • Lemon: A citrus fruit known for its tangy and refreshing flavor profile.
  • Ice: Crucial for chilling the cocktail and maintaining its crispness. Ice cubes cool down the drink, making it an enjoyable, refreshing experience, especially on warm days.
  • Sugar: A natural sweetener that enhances the overall taste and helps to balance the acidity from the lemon and tartness from the berries.
  • Lucia Sparkling Blanc: An elegant sparkling wine characterized by its effervescence and delicate taste. It adds a touch of sophistication and celebratory vibes to the cocktail, making it perfect for special occasions.


  • Cocktail shaker for mixing the ingredients.
  • Stemless wine glass tumbler.
  • Cocktail crushing tool for muddled ingredients.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Muddle the Berries: In a cocktail shaker, add a handful of mixed berries and gently muddle them to release their vibrant flavours. This step is crucial as it infuses the cocktail with the luscious taste of the berries.
  • Squeeze the Lemon: Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice from one lemon wedge into the cocktail shaker. The citrusy burst will balance the sweetness and add a tangy twist to the cocktail.
  • Add Vodka: Pour a generous amount of vodka into the cocktail shaker, depending on your preference for the cocktail's strength. We recommend about 2-3 ounces for a balanced and enjoyable cocktail.
  • Sweeten the Mix: To enhance the flavors and add a touch of sweetness, sprinkle a teaspoon of sugar into the cocktail shaker. You can adjust the sweetness according to your taste.
  • Shake and Strain: Secure the lid of the cocktail shaker and vigorously shake the mixture for about 10-15 seconds. Strain the cocktail into chilled tumbler glasses to achieve that crisp and refreshing taste.
  • Top with Lucia Sparkling Blanc: Once the cocktail is strained into the glasses, top each glass with the dazzling bubbles of Lucia Sparkling Blanc. The sparkling wine elevates the cocktail with its effervescence, making it an indulgent and celebratory drink.
  • Garnish: Enhance the cocktail's visual appeal and aroma by garnishing each glass with a skewer of fresh berries. The vibrant colors of the berries will entice your senses and elevate the overall experience.
