Bellini's and Mimosas have long reigned dominant over brunch, but all of that is about to change with my delicious recipe to upgrade your way of drinking prosecco. This fresh fruit Prosecco Cocktail is a perfect drink to serve for any get-together, from the most elegant to the just-for-fun events. Since fresh fruit is in season, I'm using White Peaches, Pineapple, and Tangerine.
As you all know, I love to give you the history behind anything I share on my blog, and you might ask what's the difference between champagne and prosecco, below you will find that it's a big difference between the two.
Champagne is a sparkling wine from France, and Prosecco is from Italy. The price difference is partially from the production method used to make each wine. Champagne is a lot more time-intensive to produce and, thus, more expensive.
You might also ask what's the difference between a Mimosa and a Bellini's
The Classic Mimosa drink recipe is an old standard cocktail. You may generally think of it as orange juice and champagne, but there's a little bit more to it than that. The usual Mimosa recipe blends champagne with orange juice and a touch of triple sec.
A Bellini is a cocktail made with Prosecco and peach purée or nectar. It originated in Venice, Italy.
I went to my local Whole Foods and picked up my favorite Italian soda for this Prosecco recipe. It was my first time trying the Blood orange flavor, but the other two, Melon Peach and Tangerine, are my favorites. I'm always looking to improve the way I make my cocktails. I swear you will enjoy these three prosecco cocktails: it's a great addition to any get-together or just laying around on a Sunday afternoon sipping on these delicious bubbly drinks.
