How about an entire lineup of sparkling wine cocktails? To celebrate the season, Nikai is launching five sparkling cocktails, a collaboration between sommelier Jonathan Gonsenhauser and barman Danny Tait. Currently the menu includes the Stratosphere (sparkling wine and Crème Yvette), the B'aktun (tequila, maraschino, Chartreuse and lemon), the Negroni Frizzante (gin, Campari and vermouth), the Frankfort (bourbon, vanilla and Cherry Heering) and the Chrysanthemum (fresh press Toronto sake, ginger and salted plum). And that's not it: Gonsenhauser and Tait might add five more sparklers, including one with tea, before the new year.
