Why choose Prosecco for your Easter Brunch?
Updated: Apr 2
Bubbles, bubbles, lovely bubbles! I love Prosecco! It's crisp, fruity refreshing taste makes it perfect for any occasion especially brunch. And compared to other sparkling wines, like champagne, Prosecco tends to be more affordable.
Made from Glera grapes from the Veneto region in Italy, this sparkling wine can stand on its own or a base for cocktails, like Mimosas or a Bellini.
Mimosa: Mix equal parts orange juice and Prosecco in a champagne flute. Garnish with a slice of orange.
Bellini: Blend fresh peach puree with Prosecco until smooth. Pour into a champagne flute and garnish with a slice of peach.
Lemon Cherry Sorbet Cocktail
In a large wine glass add:
One scoop of Cherry Sorbet (or sherbet contains dairy)
One scoop of Lemon Sorbet (or sherbet contains dairy)
Pour Prosecco over the Sorbet scoops.
Garnish with a lemon
For brunch, darling it is delightful! Pair your Prosecco, Mimosa, or Bellini with:
Smoked salmon garnished with lemon wedges
Spinach and feta quiche
Smoke Turkey and Swiss Croissants
Pecan Waffles with fruit topping and whipped cream
Or treat yourself to a Peach Bellini and a breakfast for one.
