Here is an easy Prosecco cocktail for Christmas parties.
I am a fan of the fizz so every cocktail menu has my eyes skipping towards those made with sparkling drinks.
Prosecco always goes down well at a party but for extra razzamatazz during the Christmas season I have concocted my own cocktail using Appletiser and brandy. Whereas the Appletiser and Prosecco alone would make a great spritzer for those wanting a lighter drink, the brandy adds warmth and extra depth.
There are no fancy shakers or syrups required here, simply pour out in roughly the correct ratios and serve immediately whilst ice cold.
For an extra touch of sparkle you can dip the glass rims in some golden sugar but you can miss that part out if you prefer.
Appletiser will celebrate its 40th birthday in 2016. I have long been a fan, finding it a lighter drink than fruit juices for occasions I’m not drinking alcohol or when I fancy a change from cola. Today is the first time I’ve tried it in a cocktail but I’m impressed what an excellent mixer Appletiser makes.
