If you are looking for a refreshing cocktail to keep you cool in the summer, Prosecco makes for a great choice. The Italian sparkling white wine is very good on its own, yet there are also other great drink varieties that use Prosecco as its key ingredient.
There is the Bellini, which combines Prosecco with peach purée; the Rossini, which uses strawberry purée; and of course the Mimosa, made with Prosecco and fresh squeezed orange juice.
My version of the Rossini that I am sharing with you today uses fresh raspberries and a splash of simple syrup in place of strawberries. After just a few pulses in your blender, you have a sweet, refreshing and delicious cocktail to enjoy during these hot summer evenings.
makes two drinks
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1 oz simple syrup
1/2 cup crushed ice
Purée the raspberries, simple syrup and crushed ice in a blender until well combined and slushy. Fill two champagne glasses 2/3 full with the raspberry purée. Fill the remainder of the glasses with Prosecco. Gently stir to combine. Enjoy!
