Prosecco

Whether you’re hosting an event on New Years Eve or have been assigned to bring the cocktails, check out the 5 different drink recipes using Prosecco. I’m personally a fan, it’s usually less expensive, but feel free to swap out with champagne. Cheers!

  • lime slices for garnish

Directions: Poor the apricot nectar in a champagne flute and top with Prosecco. Garnish with lime slices if desired.

2. Prosecco Blush

  • 1/4 cup chilled sparkling grapefruit juice or pink grapefruit juice

4. Pomegranate Cocktails
