What could be more joyful, more sparkling, more exotic than a cocktail made with Prosecco? The Rossini is a mixture of strawberry puree (fresh or frozen) and the famous sparkling wine. A pleasure to drink as well as to prepare. It announces the beautiful days, the evenings all in softness, and gives you the impression to take the aperitif healthy! Of course, we should not exaggerate, it remains an alcoholic drink. But all the same...
A cocktail that brings you to Venice
I discovered Prosecco-based cocktails in Venice. I was very young, and for me they were surrounded by an aura of mystery: I didn't dare enter them, but I tried to imagine Harry's Bar, the Cipriani, the Danieli... those elegant and mythical places where great depressed writers drowned their spleen by drinking those refined cocktails, their eyes lost in the Canal Grande. I barely had enough money to buy a coffee in Piazza San Marco, and all the ceremony that went with it. It was already a lot, and I immediately fell in love with the Italian way of life. I even promised myself to buy a palace there. A totally stupid project in the eyes of the local Italians, who explained to me that apart from a thousand and one problems, what I was going to get was terrible rheumatism. Well. In the meantime, let's drink!
- 1 blender
- 1 bottle sparkling wine Prosecco
- 500 grams strawberries
- 2 tsp. sugar
- 1 lemon - squeezed juice
- Blend the strawberries in a blender to a fine purée. Keep a few for decoration of the glasses.
- Add the lemon juice and sugar to the strawberry puree
- Pour the purée into the bottom of the carafe, then slowly top up with the prosecco. As it mixes, your cocktail will take on a beautiful pinkish-red color.
- Decorate the glasses with the remaining strawberries, pour and enjoy!
