Festive Fizz

December’s here so that means it’s officially acceptable to start getting excited about Christmas!  For us that means parties, lots of fizz (of course) and a festive cocktail or three.  Here are five of our favourite, easy to make recipes to help you get the party started.

 

Prosecco Royale

A classic cocktail that’s quick and simple, so it’s perfect for parties, or for sustenance when the present mountain needs wrapping.

1 part crème de cassis

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3 parts prosecco

  • Pour the crème de cassis into a champagne flute and stir in the lemon juice
  • Top with Prosecco
  • Garnish with a blueberry or two

 

Flowered Up

This is a real showstopper of a cocktail that uses hibiscus flowers in syrup, which you can buy at Lakelands.

The flower is of course edible, it tastes a little bit like raspberries, but it’s the petals slowly unfurling once the Prosecco is poured in that really makes it special.

1 hibiscus flower per glass

1 teaspoon of syrup

Prosecco

  • Place the hibiscus flower into a glass
  • Spoon in the syrup
  • Top with Prosecco
  • Wait for the petals to blossom

 

Sloe Gin Fizz

This year’s sloe gin won’t be ready yet, but if you were smart and got busy making a batch last year then you’re in luck.  Check the supermarket for a bottle if you weren’t so productive.

25ml sloe gin

Prosecco

  • Pour the sloe gin into a champagne flute
  • Top with prosecco
  • Drink up!

 

Prosecco Julep

Mix warming bourbon and mint to create this classic julep. A great winter Prosecco cocktail that always impresses.

30ml bourbon

Prosecco

2 sprigs of mint

1 teaspoon demerara sugar

  • Add the mint and sugar to a coupe glass a bash it about a bit with a spoon
  • Add the bourbon
  • Top with Prosecco

 

 

Cranberry Fizzer

AKA Christmas in a glass, this cocktail mixes orange and cranberry to create a truly festive looking tipple. Cheers!

1 tablespoon Grand Marnier orange liqueur

1 tablespoon cranberry juice

Prosecco

Frozen cranberries

Sprig of rosemary

  • Add the Grand Marnier and cranberry juice to a champagne flute
  • Top with Prosecco
  • Scatter in some frozen cranberries and garnish with rosemary
