Get Ready For Summer With A Big Sparkling Wine Cocktail

Sometimes all you need is a Big Glass and a Bottle of Bubbly.

Whether you are going to be spending your summer holiday aboard, on the beach, somewhere in your country or at home, you are always going to want a big bottomless glass filled with a refreshing cocktail in your hand at all times.

This cocktail I’m going to show you how to make will be berry, berry good…. yes I made that joke.

The Sparkling Wine – Foss Marai Roos Brut

Foss Marai Roos Brut is available to buy from Mondial Wines, who specialise in premium Italian Sparkling Wines.

Founded in 1986 Foss Marai started out in old rural buildings made only of wood, stones and bricks, the company was founded by two people, Carlo Biasiotto, of Adriana Moretti, soon to married, these two people had a love for the Conegliano-Valdobbiadene area, so they decided to make their own Sparkling Wine, and with help from their entrepreneurial children, Andrea, Cristiana and Umberto, Foss Marai has grown into the company it is today. It is available in the UK from Mondial Wine.

Tasting Notes

Aroma – “A lovely red berry aroma with a hint of green apples.”

Taste – ” Dryer experience, with strawberry flavours.”

This Italian Sparkling Wine won a Silver Medal in Forget Me Not Category at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly Awards 2019.

The Cocktail

I’ve already done a Tropical Cocktail so I wanted to go for a big summer berry cocktail for you berry lovers out there.


  • A Bottle of Foss Marai
  • Summer Berry Juice
  • Strawberries
  • Gin, Fruit Infused if possible
  • Grenadine if you want a even sweeter touch

How To Make the Cocktail

  1. Get yourself a big glass.
  2. Pour in 25ml of Gin.
  3. Pour in 150ml of Summer Berry Juice.
  4. If you want, drop in 10-20ml of Grenadine.
  5. Finish off with 200ml of Sparkling Wine.

Tasting Notes

Aroma – “This reminds me of summer. Ripe fruits from Strawberries to Peach in aromas.”

Taste – “A welcoming sweetness that is elegantly displayed in the palate allowing a moreish rich fruit flavour with a subtle Gin expressed via the Fizz.”

This was a delicious cocktail, a sure love for anyone who enjoys summer berries, I will undeniably be making this again during the summer.
