As The Union's offering for Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation Pride Cocktail Crawl, Kristi-Leigh Akister created this sparkling wine cocktail. The drink starts off with bold citrus and tequila, then finishes with a more subtle floral note of the crème de violette.

1 stalk lemongrass, muddled
1 1/2 oz. Olmeca Altos Tequila Reposado
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz. simple syrup
1 1/2 oz. prosecco
1/4 oz. Giffards creme de violette

Combine first 3 ingredients in a shaker tin. Shake with ice, double strain into a chilled flute glass.

Top with bubbles, and slowly add the creme de violette allowing it to sink. Garnish with a lemon twist, and enjoy!
