PROSECCO COCKTAILS – THE SUMMER REFRESHMENT

 

Tantalise your taste buds

If you’re looking for something a little different to embellish your wedding celebrations, liven up your garden party or you just love Prosecco and want to enhance your enjoyment, why not try some of the following amazing Prosecco cocktails? They can add a real WOW factor and conversation topic to any celebration by enticing your guests to try something a little different at the Prosecco cocktail bar. Prosecco is the ideal sparkling wine for turning into a cocktail as it is lighter and sweeter than champagne and tends to appeal to most people rather than just a few.

Starting with Premier Estates’ sublime triple-award-winning Prosecco and just adding some simple ingredients can turn your glass of Prosecco into a sophisticated celebration extravaganza. Just follow the instructions below:

  • Raspberry Prosecco Bellini

Let’s start with a simple, classic Prosecco cocktail. This one’s easy, just put a measure of raspberry liqueur into a Prosecco flute, add the Prosecco (the drink should be four fifths Prosecco and one fifth liqueur) and then embellish with a sprig of basil.

  • Rose-ecco

Author and former fashion model, Sophie Dahl is credited with coming up with this one. Another simple Prosecco cocktail recipe that produces amazing results in seconds. All you need do here is fill a Prosecco flute about three quarters of the way with Prosecco and then add a tablespoon of rose syrup, allowing it to slide to the bottom of the glass.

  • Lemon Sherbert Fizz
This one is always a zingy, tangy winner, just add a heaped teaspoon of lemon sorbet to a Prosecco flute, pop in a few drops of lime or lemon cordial and top up with Prosecco. Give the whole mix a stir, pop a slice of lemon on the side and watch for the smile!

  • Sorrento Sparkle

Another mouth-watering wonder inspired by the Italian Amalfi coast town of Sorrento, famous for its limoncello lemon liqueur. Just add around 30ml of limoncello to the flute and fill to the brim with chilled Prosecco. Garnish with a slice of lemon on the side and you have another very simple but sophisticated Prosecco cocktail to add to your menu.

  • Paddington’s Prosecco

Try this one for something a bit different. Add a tablespoon of warm marmalade and just a teaspoon of honey to a tumbler. Pop in a dash of orange juice and a little whiskey liqueur, if desired, allow to cool and then top up with Prosecco and serve.

  • Pomegranate And Grapefruit Prosecco Sparkler

Always an immensely popular Prosecco cocktail once sampled, simply add three teaspoons each of fresh pomegranate juice and grapefruit juice to the flute and top up with Prosecco. Garnish with a slice of grapefruit and experience an amazing array of flavours and sensations.

  • Cherry Sparkler
Very much a favourite amongst Prosecco cocktail connoisseurs and again very easy to make quickly when there’s a queue of eager party guests. This one consists of 3 teaspoons of cherry liqueur, 3 teaspoons of Campari and 1 teaspoon of cherry juice. Top up with Prosecco and add a couple of cherries to the glass for effect. Perfect. If you like cherries, that is!

  • Fast Backhand

Cool down after a spot of tennis with this Wimbledon inspired creation. We know the tennis is all over but that doesn’t mean the Prosecco cocktails are! Pop a couple of teaspoons each of strawberry liqueur and peach schnapps into a flute. You can also pop in a blob of vanilla ice-cream if you fancy before topping off with Prosecco.

  • Watermelon Mint Prosecco Cocktail
A few very subtle flavours involved here to complement everyone’s favourite summer sparkler. The best way to go about creating this cocktail is to pre-make some watermelon ice-cubes by blending the watermelon and freezing it in an ice-cube tray. Add a couple of these to a Prosecco flute, top up with Prosecco and add a sprig of mint to impart its delicate flavour to the whole ensemble.

  • Prosecco Margaritas
Let’s finish off this little list with a variation on the classic Margarita cocktail. Add a dash of tequila and a dash of Cointreau to the flute and pop in a couple of teaspoons of syrup. Top up with Prosecco, salt the flute rims and slice up your limes and you’re good to go. Make sure you have plenty of tequila and Cointreau when this little Prosecco cocktail wonder is on offer, it will undoubtedly prove very popular!

Of course, the above list is only scratching the surface of the world of Prosecco cocktails and there are myriads of other recipes and elaborate creations out there to be sampled. Expect us to revisit this topic very soon.

Enjoy!
