Our top 10 Prosecco cocktails... 

Prosecco royale
Mix one part crème de cassis with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and top with three parts prosecco. Skewer a couple of blueberries onto a sprig of thyme and drop into the glass to serve. 


Rose-eccoRose-ecco 
Invented by Sophie Dahl - fill a glass with Prosecco and pour one tablespoon of rose syrup down the inside of the glass so that it slides to the bottom.

Bakewell Fizz
Place a Kirsch-soaked cherry along with one tablespoon of Kirsch in the bottom of a Champagne flute. Top with one part Amaretto Disaronno and three parts Prosecco. 

Hibiscus proseccoHibiscus Prosecco
Put a hibiscus flower (from lakeland.co.uk and some supermarkets) with one teaspoon of its syrup in the bottom of a glass, and pour over Prosecco. Don't discard the flower - it tastes of raspberry and rhubarb.

Christmas pear Prosecco
Decorate the rim of a Champagne flute by dipping it in a saucer of water then into a dish of one tablespoon caster sugar mixed with half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Add one tablespoon of ginger syrup from a jar of stem ginger into the glass then top with equal quantities of pear juice and Prosecco, garnish with a slice of stem ginger.

SbagliatoA Sbagliato
A relation of the Negroni - mix four parts Prosecco, one part sweet vermouth (such as Martini Bianco) and one part Campari. Serve with a twist of orange zest.

Raspberry Prosecco Bellini
Pour one part Raspberry liqueur into a champagne flute then add one sprig of fresh basil. Top with four parts Prosecco and serve. 


ForagersForager's fizz
A splash of sloe gin and a blackberry or two, topped up with Prosecco.

Prosecco pomander
Combine the juice of one clementine with one part Cointreau and three parts Prosecco in a Champagne glass or tumbler. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and a slice of clementine studded with cloves. 

Prosecco French 77
For a spin on this classic, place one part elderflower cordial, one part lemon juice and one parts gin in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until well combined then strain into a tall glass. Top with Prosecco and serve with a twist of lemon and a couple of mint leaves.

While the first statement is quite questionable (given that Champagne's notes from Piniot Noir/Meunier are much smoother than the average - genuine - Prosecco), it is interesting that the article does not mention the "Spritz" ...which is one of the easiest, tastiest and most refreshing drinks with a Prosecco component.

We discovered that ice cold Prosecco with a small tot of Toffee Vodka put into the glass first was THE most delicious drink we had ever had. (The good toffee vodka made in Cumbria) I don't like sweet drinks but this is nectar! So, after much deliberation, we called it Sticky Russian.

The classic 'Pirlo' from Brescia, Italy gives you 2 great options: Prosecco with Campari or a sweeter option, Prosecco with Aperol. Both delicious aperitivi.

I put a small amount of sorbet in the bottom of a champagne glass, then fill with Prosecco. It's dessert and a drink! Delicious! For New Years, I will be pouring a lovely cherry meade (made by my husband) over chocolate sorbet.
