Yield: serves 4-6
Time: 30 minutes

For the Papaya Shrub

  • 1 cup rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 12 papaya, peeled and seeded, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

For the Cocktail

  • 1 12 cups rosé wine
  • 34 cup Cocchi Americano
  • 34 cup papaya shrub
  • 13 cup plus 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice, plus wheels for garnish
  • Prosecco, for serving
  • Mint sprigs, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Make the Papaya Shrub: Bring vinegar, sugar, and papaya to a simmer in a 2-qt. saucepan. Reduce heat to very low and cook until papaya is very soft, 30 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely; strain into an airtight container, pressing on solids to extract flavor, and refrigerate until ready to use or up to 2 weeks.
  2. Make the cocktail: Combine wine, Cocchi Americano, shrub, and lemon juice in a pitcher. Divide between 4–6 ice-filled wine glasses and top each with 1–2 oz. prosecco. Garnish with lemon wheels and mint sprigs.
