Prosecco Cocktail Recipes


Prosecco is a sparkling dry white wine made primarily from Glera grapes that are grown in the Prosecco region of Italy. It is sometimes compared to Champagne in texture and taste. However, Prosecco is produced differently and the flavor is not exactly the same. This wine is bubbly, crisp, and has notes of citrus fruits. All varieties of Prosecco average approximately 11% alcohol content and are more affordable than Champagne when looking for a sparkling beverage.

In the dog days of summer, when temperatures and humidity are high, cocktails made with Prosecco are cooling and refreshing. Imagine sitting and sipping a chilled, sparkling wine cocktail. Let’s explore some classic and modern takes on mixed drinks made with Prosecco.
