13th of August celebrated a national prosecco day. It is an amazingly refreshing alcoholic drink for the summer but not everyone is a big fan of drinking just prosecco itself. With that in mind, we have compiled a list of 7 easy cocktail recipes with prosecco to make your summer drinks delicious and fresh!
Cranberry Pomegranate Prosecco Cocktail
Without adding complexity, this Cranberry Pomegranate Prosecco Cocktail is a fantastic way to liven up your happy hour. Make this fruity, refreshing beverage for a date night or to enjoy with friends.
Ingredients (6 glasses):
· 2 tablespoons sugar
· lime wedges
· 750 ml bottle of Prosecco Sparkling Wine, chilled
· 12 tablespoons cranberry-pomegranate juice (If you can't find a cranberry-pomegranate blend, use each juice separately in equal amounts)
· fresh cranberries
· pomegranate seeds
How to Make:
Fill a tiny, shallow plate with sugar. Champagne flutes should have the inside of a lime wedge cut out and rubbed over the rim before being dipped into the sugar dish. Prosecco and cranberry-pomegranate juice (2 teaspoons per glass, more if you want it fruitier!) should be poured into glasses. As desired, garnish with lime wedges, fresh cranberries, and pomegranate seeds. Enjoy!
Sparkling Raspberry Martini
Fresh raspberries, delicious raspberry vodka, and fizzy prosecco combine to create a crisp, refreshing, and slightly sweet sparkling raspberry martini. In addition, it's a lovely pink cocktail!
· raspberry vodka- Absolut and Smirnoff work great for this.
· fresh raspberries
· white sugar
· raspberry syrup– you can find it at the grocery store or liquor stores
How to make:
Begin with the sugar and raspberries (easier if you use a cocktail shaker). Use a muddler or the back of a wooden or plastic spoon to muddle them together. Add a little more sugar if you prefer your drinks to be really sweet.
Add a few cubes of ice, the raspberry syrup, and the vodka. Shake ferociously while tightly covering the shaker with the lid. Lid removed, prosecco added. Avoid shaking it! Cover, then gently strain into a martini glass to combine the prosecco, raspberry vodka, and raspberry syrup. Additionally, it will stop the raspberry pieces from spilling into the beverage. Ready to drink!

How to make: Before you begin, you need to make sure your glass is very cold. Put some ice in your glass to chill it first.

Prepare your pre-chilled glass with new ice. Pour your drink twice through a strainer and into your glass after shaking it in a cocktail shaker. No more than half of the glass should be filled.
