Fleming’s champagne cocktail for the evening is the Sparkling Star, developed by wine director Maeve Pesquera. Maeve developed a sparkling wine cocktail that will tickle your nose and put a twinkle in your eye. Since she’s pouring a California sparkler, Chandon étoile Brut, and the word "étoile" is French for "star," she calls the cocktail, Sparkling Star. This cocktail is available for $10.95 a glass.
