As John says, this is really an orange-flavored spritz made with Lambrusco, an Italian red sparkling wine. But today, in honor of Mother's Day, we're calling it "Mama Knows Best." "It has a bit of a sparkling sangria vibe to it," he adds. Rach approves. "Wow," she says after a sip. "That is really one of your best, honey. It's beautiful. It's really fragrant, too!"
*For the simple syrup, combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved, then let cool to room temperature. Syrup will keep, tightly covered, in the refrigerator for up to 1 month. Makes about 1 ½ cups.
Add the brandy, orange liqueur, simple syrup and orange bitters to a cocktail shaker. Add ice, shake to chill and strain into an ice-filled wine goblet. Top with Lambrusco and garnish with orange twist and rosemary sprig.
