Strawberry Rossini Cocktail Recipe with Prosecco
This rossini cocktail is an easy two ingredient drink made with fresh strawberry puree and bubbly prosecco. This light and fresh Italian cocktail is perfect for valentine's day, brunch or mother's day.
Pour approximately ¼ cup of the puree into a champagne flute or wine glass and then fill the remainder of the glass slowly with prosecco. Garnish glasses with a fresh strawberry, if desired, and serve.
Using fresh strawberry puree gives this drink a light fruity flavor that isn't overly sweet. Pre-made strawberry puree usually has sugar in it and will make for a sweeter drink.
When adding the prosecco to the glass, pour it slowly, so it doesn't overflow.
If the puree and prosecco don't blend together, the drink can be gently stirred to combine it.
Substitutions and Variations
Prosecco - Champagne, sparkling white wine or sparkling rosé can also be used. For a sweeter cocktail, try using sweet or fruity sparkling white wine as opposed to a more brut or dry variety.
For a crowd - Serve the puree in a small pitcher next to the bottles of chilled prosecco so guests can make their own.
Berries - For a different flavor, raspberries or blueberries can be pureed instead of, or in combination with the strawberries.
Non-Alcoholic - Replace the prosecco with club soda or strawberry flavored sparkling water.
