    The inspiration for this drink of the week.

    Most places that do brunch offer a few de riguer sparkling cocktails like Mimosa or Bellini, because they know diners expect it along with their eggs Benedict. At Twenty/20 Grill & Wine Bar, however, they go all out, creating a Sparkling Sundays menu from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays that features 10 drinks with sparkling wine or champagne.

    The Mango Ginger Fizz is a golden mix of Domaine de Canton Ginger liqueur, mango nectar and bubbly a Twenty/20 Mimosa that was tangy with the taste of blood orange juice. Other sparkling drinks include a French 75, a lemony gin cocktail, The Fraise with strawberries and champagne and the Au Pear with Hangar One Spiced Pear vodka and St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur. All are priced from $7 to $10.

    The brunch menu created by resort chef Steven Patrick is unconventional too, offering wine friendly, California style tapas created with local ingredients in season.

    The tapas menu is so popular that it’s also offered on Thursday nights. For reservations or for more information, visit The Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa web site or call 760-827-2500. The resort is located at 5480 Grand Pacific Drive, Carlsbad, Calif. 92008
