Prosecco : Italian Bubbly, my summer obssession

Prosecco : Italian Bubbly, my summer obssession

When I first went to Italy, about 3 years ago, I discovered this amazing bubbly wine and I have been drinking it since then! I drink it all year long but it is especially nice during summer because it’s so light and refreshing!

You can drink prosecco by itself, with little frozen berries as your ice cubes, you can put it in a mimosa instead of expensive champagne or you can put it in a white sangria! I will be posting my white sangria recipe soon!

The best thing about this wine is its price! Around 12$ for a bottle!

I think i am going to open a bottle right now!

Cheers!

    Is it correct that prosecco is lower in alcohol?

    It is about 11-12%. It is a bit lower in calories than wine :)

    Dear Alexandra, I´m Maria from Germany ;o)
    I saw your blog by accident and I will try to bake and cook some of your recipes.
    By the way I read your article about Prosecco and have to recipes for you.
    Here in Europe it´s usual to drink Prosecco and we have it in every price class.
    For the 2 recipes I sent to you you could by a lower price class.
    It´s really not necessary to by a high price class!

    1. Name: Aperol Sprizz

    0,67 fluid oz Aperol (italian liquer – bitter, sweet)
    a sip of water with gas
    2-3 ice cubes
    a half slice of a fresh Orange (nonessential, just for decoration)
    dry Prosecco

    use a glass for redwine

    Please never use Campari because it´s to bitter!

    2. Name: Hugo

    0,67 fluid oz elderflower syrup
    a sip of water with gas
    2-3 ice cubes
    spearmint (shredded for more flavor)
    dry Prosecco

    use a glass for redwine

    I hope you enjoy and warm regards,

    Maria
