Sparkling Sugar Plum

Sparkling Sugar Plum cocktail with ginger liqueur, plum wine, passion fruit puree, and sparkling sake

Sparkling sake is our New Favorite Thing™ right now, and the Sparking Sugar Plum is a recipe that truly does it justice. The flavor is divine, like some kind of exotic fuzzy-skinned fruit. The sparkling sake adds a lovely fizz that offsets the viscosity of the passion fruit puree.

Note that the recipe calls for plum wine, not plum brandy – the former is a sweet liqueur made from tart Asian plums, while the latter is a much drier eau de vie.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake everything (except the sparkling sake) with ice. Strain into a chilled flute or cocktail glass and top with sparkling sake. Garnish with a piece of candied ginger or a twist of lemon.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
