California Citrus Easy Sparkling Wine Cocktail

California Citrus Easy Sparkling Wine Cocktail

The holidays are the perfect time to bring out your inner mixologist and create some amazing cocktails for your guests, including this California citrus easy sparkling wine cocktail!  

I’m a lover of all things bourbon, so it was a no-brainer for me to incorporate it into this drink.  The sparkling wine softens the harshness that can sometimes be attributed to whiskey, so it’s a win-win situation.  Bourbon essence and the fizz of sparkling wine all in one glass! 

And, when we add in the citrus and the pomegranate-rosemary ice cube, the festiveness is almost too much!
