- 3 oz Prosecco Rosé
- 1 oz plum-infused sweet vermouth
- 2 dashes of lavender cocktail bitters

- For plum-infused vermouth:
- 8 black plums, sliced
- 1 bottle (750 ml) sweet vermouth
For the cocktail:

For the plum-infused vermouth:
Start by using a cutting board to slice your plums into small pieces. Next, place all the slices into a large air-tight container and add the entire bottle of sweet vermouth. It’s important to tightly seal and refrigerate the container for 2-3 days to allow the flavors to marinate properly. Remember that the infused mixture can last for up to 2-3 weeks, but it may turn into vinegar. Rather than discarding it, consider using it as a cooking wine. Additionally, don’t throw away the plums – they make a great addition to salads and entrees such as beef, poultry, fish, or vegetarian/vegan options!
