I am guilty of thinking a signature drink makes a party. Remember this FUN drink from Nicole’s birthday party. We were supposed to color our aprons, but was having so much fun chatting about the birthday drink, the aprons never saw a marker…haha.
A couple weeks ago, I hosted a combo party…Stella & Dot and Wine Decadence. Talk about the perfect combination – jewelry and wine!! Obviously I wanted a signature drink (insert sassy hand blonde emoji) and I wanted it to center around the Piccini Prosecco from the Wine Decadence line. But, I wanted it to be EASY…time was of the essence!!
After a quick Pinterest search, I found the perfect cocktail. I changed a little bit of it to make it my own, but it stems from the one found on Unexpected Elegance.
It was so delicious I made it again for a small 4th of July party we hosted here at the house. I added the red white and blue straws for some patriotism!!
How yummy does this look?!?!
Fresh Raspberries and Blackberries
Simple Syrup (homemade or store bought)
One bottle of Piccini Prosecco
Mint (from my neighbor’s garden!! Thank you Kathy!!)
This is my favorite Prosecco…I use it for Mimosas too!!
Muddle the berries
Add Simple Syrup (**see homemade directions below**) and ice to the muddled berries, shake well to ensure everything is combined well
Feel free to add non-muddled berries to the glass for presentation
Pour the berry syrup over the non-muddled berries to fill the glass 1/3 full and then add the Piccini Prosecco to top the glass off
Top it off with fresh mint
**We usually make our own Simple Syrup only because we don’t have the store bought bottle on hand. Super simple – 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water, bring to a boil, remove from the heat, stir, let cool. Chill in the fridge until ready to use. **
I don’t have a muddler so I used what was on hand and it is one of the kids mini rolling pin and it worked perfectly. If it hadn’t been a hectic day, I would have let the kids help with this step…so fun!!
ta da…muddled berries
The drink is truly very SIMPLE to make and sets the stage for any Spring or Summer party you’re hosting. Will you try it!?! And if so, please send me a text or tag me…I would LOVE to see!!
