Jim and Tonic Fizz Cocktails

15th April 2021

Rhubarb Fizz Cocktail

Jim and Tonic recently sent through a survival kit featuring a Rhubarb Gin and over a dozen mini bottles of Ginger Ale, Lemonade and Tonic Waters, so I decided to grab a bottle of Italian Sparkling Wine and create a few cocktails to survive the weekend.

Whether you be surviving lockdown or simply just surviving on a deserted island somewhere trying to unravel the secrets of a hidden bunker (a little ‘Lost’ reference for you there), Jim & Tonic give you a variety of choices when browsing their website to find the right Survival Kit for you.

The Sparkling Wine – Riva Dei Frati

‘Riva dei Frati owes its name to the place where the vineyards were located: an abbey forgotten by time and a steep slope. A ‘shore’ particularly suited to viticulture, exposed to the wind and sunny, where the grapes of the truest Prosecco refine their scent.’

Knowing the history or meaning behind certain parts of a winery or wines name gives the whole experience a grander sense and a more enjoyable experience because now I have an image in my mind of a forgotten abbey on the gorgeous landscape of Italy, so beautiful that no pictures could ever capture.

Riva Dei Frati grow their vines between 50 and 500 meters above sea level, they also have an approximate 1200 metres square basement with tanks that have a total capacity of 2,000 hectoliters. They use ancient secrets combined with modern technologies to develop their Sparkling Wines.

Riva Dei Frati – Claudia Rosé Tasting Notes
