Prosecco Trends We Love!

POP, FIZZ, CLINK!

FUN WAYS TO ENJOY PROSECCO!

 

There's something so prestige and exciting about the sound of a bottle of Prosecco, Champagne or Sparkling wine being cracked for the first time. The build up, the release, then the excitement and celebration that follow!  Weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, showers are all events that require a proper toast or salute to a life accomplishment. We raise a glass to show honour and commitment and we clink our glasses to complete the experience as one.

PROSECCO LOVERS UNITE!

Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine. It is served chilled and unlike Champagne, is not sweet. We love it because it is so deliciously common, yet it can be used in so many ways that may be completely foreign to us.  We're going to break down Prosecco for you. We're going to dig deep and compile our top 5 most favourite ways to consume Prosecco. This could be tricky and may require some Prosecco as an inspiration... one second... OK, that's better!

Beat the heat with these delectable beauties. Not only are they stunning in colour, but they taste just as delicious as they appear!  So simple to create and a perfect refreshment to offer your guests on a scorching summer day.

Fill a wine glass  with Prosecco of choice and place a popsicle into the glass. As it melts, it gives the Prosecco a nice, surprising fruit flavour and as it sits the  Prosecco becomes more of a Bellini.  A perfect beverage for any occasion.  Who says Popsicles are just for kids?

The best part about these is that there is no limit to your creativity. All that is required is a bottle of your desired Prosecco, a Popsicle mold, fruit whole or blended, additional fruit juice, liqueur or water (soda or still).

"I'D LIKE A PROSECCO COCKTAIL PLEASE"

Prosecco cocktails are delicious and widely available. More and more restaurants and bars have jumped on this Prosecco trend and are getting crafty with this drink of choice. Traditional cocktails have also been slightly altered to accommodate Prosecco, such as Margaritas, Mojitos and Spritzers. Check out PURE WOW for 10 elegant and easy Prosecco Cocktail recipes below:

CAN I GET AN AMEN?!

I saved the Prosecco Godfather for the end. If you are traditionalist like me, why mess with a good thing. Prosecco can stand alone. It is a drink of stature and class.  I enjoy a glass of Prosecco for a special occasion, when celebrating with family or friends. On a nice quiet Sunday morning I can appreciate a mimosa (or 2). A mimosa is the go to Prosecco drink of choice for daytime events. It is a mix of Prosecco, your choice of juice and a fruit garnish - the garnish is optional. It is simple, delicious and how can you have just one?
