We love the color blood oranges give this classic brunch cocktail. A dash of bitters adds depth. Look for orange bitters--such as Fee Brothers or Stirrings--at liquor stores or specialty grocers. The sugar cube dissolves as you sip, balancing the bitters and giving off bubbles for a festive touch. Juice the oranges and keep chilled up to a day ahead.
Serves 12 (serving size: about 3/4 cup)
1. Place 1 sugar cube in each of 12 Champagne flutes or slender glasses; add 1 drop bitters to each flute. Combine wine and juice. Divide wine mixture evenly among flutes. Garnish with rind, if desired.
