Sparkling wine cocktails make for simply delicious drinks to enjoy during the warm summer months. Perfect for festive occasions like birthdays and celebration, they're just as good for backyard barbecues or lazy Saturday afternoons spent getting mildly day-drunk.

This particular drink is based on a cinnamon honey-green tea syrup. To prepare the syrup, boil water before removing from heat and adding green tea bags. Then stir honey, let cool and refrigerate till cold. Stir in cinnamon.

To craft the sparkling wine cocktail together, start by combining an ounce of your syrup along with vodka and lemon juice in a Collins glass, before topping off with sparkling wine. Add ice for an extra cooling touch and garnish with cranberries for an extra dash of summery flavor and bright color.
