A collection of 40 delicious cocktail recipes featuring the hugely popular Italian sparkling wine that has taken social drinking by a storm - Prosecco! Ah, Prosecco, how we love it! With its crisp, zesty bubbles and light, fruity flavour, Champagne's perkier younger cousin is our favourite sparkling wine, hands-down. But what many of us don't realize is that those easy-drinking qualities we love so much are exactly what makes it a fantastic base for cocktails, too. Prosecco's sprightly bubbles combine brilliantly with all kinds of liqueurs and spirits, so it's time to open the drinks cabinet and start experimenting - and Prosecco Cocktails is the perfect companion to get you started. There are Prosecco-led twists on the classics, like the Kir Royale or Prosecco Mojito; sophisticated aperitifs like the classic Spritz or the strawberry-infused Rossini; absolute party barnstormers like the Sangria Blanca, infused with white peach and basil; and intriguing sweet treats like the Wild Berry Cheesecake or Sparkling Parma Violet. Everyone enjoys the magical sound of well-chilled fizz cascading into a sparkling clean glass, adding its special cheer to any occasion. Now let's take it to a whole new level! Whether you're hosting an action-packed hen party or a dainty baby shower, a sunny beachside barbecue or a festive Christmas drinks gathering, an intimate meal a deux or a gossip-fuelled get-together, a fun family celebration or a soignee dinner party, the true joy of Prosecco is that it's ideal for any occasion.
