Mr. C Cocktail

In a cocktail shaker, combine the puree, vodka, Prosecco and lemon juice with ice. Shake lightly and pour into a rocks glass or strain into a flute. Top with more Prosecco to make it extra bubbly for the summer.

Adapted from Mr. C Beverly Hills. To make mandarin puree, peel the fruit and puree in a food processor, sweetening as desired with sugar; press the puree through a sieve, discarding the solids.

If it’s entertaining, Jessica Gelt has likely covered it. Since joining the Los Angeles Times in 2003, she has written about television, music, movies, books, art, fashion, food, cocktails and more. She once played bass in a band with an inexplicably large following in Spain, and still gets stopped by fans (OK, maybe a fan) on the streets of Barcelona. She loves dive bars and very dry martinis with olives, though never simultaneously.
