Armagnac Fizz Cocktail

This cocktail is kind of like an adult version of the childhood favorite Shirley Temple drink. Inspired by my trip to an Armagnac distillery, this cocktail is a great balance of sweetness from the grenadine and character from the Armagnac. Topped off with something bubbly just makes it ideal for a special occasion. Who knew grenadine wasn’t just for kids?


  • 1 teaspoon grenadine syrup
  • 1/2 ounce armagnac
  • sparkling wine (such as prosecco, cremant or cava)


Pour the grenadine and Armagnac into the bottom of your flute. Stir gently. Top with your sparkling wine.



Best not to buy an expensive sparkling wine for this cocktail. Something reasonably priced will do.
