Now, let’s get to crafting some Prosecco cocktails!
When it comes to Prosecco cocktails, a Bellini or Aperol Spritz may be the first thing that pops into your mind, but the Sgroppino is another traditional Italian drink that is made with lemon sorbet and vodka. Refreshing and frosty, this bubbly cocktail is a must-try when going for something traditional yet unpredicatable.
If you’re still looking for something traditional, but with a unique twist, try this Bellini crafted with lavender infused simple syrup.
This orange juice based sparkler is spiked with chamomile and rosemary simple syrup, which adds an extra layer of herbal deliciousness on top of gin.

RHUBARB FIZZ COCKTAIL
This pretty pink drink uses fresh rhubarb and lemon, along with vanilla bean for an extra sweet and flavorful touch. Add gin and Prosecco, and life is complete!
LIMONCELLO PROSECCO WITH BLUEBERRIES & THYME
When it comes to Italian cocktails, limoncello is a quintessential – and tasty – spirit. This simple recipe is perfect for transporting yourself to the picturesque country, even if you’re miles away.

Grilled peaches are delicious. Prosecco is delicious. Mix them up together in a cocktail and they make magic. Sure, you have to put in a little extra work in front of the grill, but the results will be worth it!
APRICOT COCONUT PROSECCO PUNCH
Apricot is one of my favorite flavor profiles to pair with Prosecco. This punch is plentiful with the golden fruit, along with creamy coconut. Garnished with a pretty flower, you won’t wanna put this one down.
