Bellini

Can you imagine Prosecco and peach pure in a glass? Well, that is Bellini. Very refreshing, very tasty, very summer! So how to make it?

Prosecco Margaritas

It’s unusual to combine the cultures of Italy and Mexico, but it works when Prosecco is added to the traditional margarita. Believe it or not, it’s a perfect match! To begin, rim the glass with salt by rubbing a piece of lime around the edge of the glass and then dipping it in the salt to cover the entire circumference. Then, in a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and syrup. Add Prosecco on top. Prosecco Margaritas are a simple cocktail to make, especially in large quantities. As a result, they are one of the best Prosecco cocktails for a large group, such as a summer mommy party or other special event. To keep the sparkle alive, add the Prosecco to each glass as you serve it.
