One of the best things about brunch is the fancy bubbly drinks. Mimosas go down oh-so-well before your chicken and waffles, or eggs Benedict. But, with restrictions in place to limit the spread of COVID being what they are at the moment, we can’t get out to patios for weekend brunches. But, this bubbly drink can help brighten up your brunch at home — even if all you’re doing is making pancakes using a mix out of a box.

Find a fancy glass; a coupe glass is recommended but you can also use a really tall flute. Or, really, who are we to judge your choice of glassware?
What you need is:
4 oz. cava
3 oz. pink port
two or three dashes orange bitters
an orange twist (but, after some experimentation, we liked using an orange section)
This is an easy cocktail to build. Start with the bitters, then add the cava and pink port to a 4:3 ratio. There is a real fruitiness to the resulting drink, and, yes, it goes down as easily as you may think. So, be careful out there!
