While we love an Aperol spritz or good old Prosecco-plus-St-Germain, you might want something a bit warmer and richer in a holiday sparkling drink.

Light like a highball, but hearty and warming, party-friendly yet sophisticated, this cocktail is so classy that it’s hard to believe it’s nothing more than bourbon, ginger beer, and hard cider poured over ice, with a dash of bitters.
