Very Berry Prosecco Cocktail

Very Berry Prosecco Cocktail

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?!?!

Directions

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

DELISH!!

**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!!
