Ciroc French 76

Ciroc vodka is a gluten-free vodka made from distilling grapes. Master distiller Jean-Sebastien Robicquet lives and works in Bordeaux, France, where he works at Maison Villevert, his family's 500-year-old distillery.

While Ciroc has several flavoured vodkas on the market, this particular cocktail is made with the Ultra Premium, a dry, smooth vodka that has pleasant citrus notes.

1 oz CÎROC Ultra Premium

0.5 oz sparkling wine (such as Prosecco or Cava)

0.5 oz simple syrup

0.5 oz lemon juice

1 blackberry (for garnish)

Shake CÎROC Ultra Premium, simple syrup and lemon juice with ice and strain into a chilled flute glass.

Top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a blackberry. Serves 1.
