Pimp Your Prosecco

There is, of course, absolutely nothing wrong with a simple, straight-up glass of Prosecco, it’s one of life’s great pleasures, but sometimes it’s good to give the nation’s favourite tipple a bit of a makeover.  We’re not on our own here either, Love magazine asked us recently to contribute some of The Vino Van’s best-loved Prosecco based cocktail recipes.
