The Dutch Tulip is a very interesting Champagne cocktail that is slightly sweet, but not as sweet as many of the others. This one takes the herbal-infused Sonnema VodkaHERB, pairs it with a semi-dry Lillet and sweetens it with a touch of nectar and raspberry. When the Champagne tops it off the bubbled stir the flavors together for a semi-dry, lightly flavored drink with hints of herbs and fruit and neither one dominating the other.
