Rossini Cocktail – Festive, gorgeous, and delicious cocktail made with Prosecco and strawberry puree!
Hiiii!! Clink! Clink! 🍷 Ain’t that the pretties drink you have ever seen?
But, this is it, friends. We’re in the thick of it. The big day is just 3 sleeps away! 😱 Someone once said, “Not to get technical… but according to chemistry, alcohol is a solution.” 😅😅😅 YASSS! I could not agree more so it would probably be best to enjoy these next few days with a drink in hand, all while wrapping presents AND enjoying time with the family.
Truth be told, that quote is what reminded me to finally share this beautiful Rossini Cocktail with you right before Christmas. Actually, I wanted to share it before Thanksgiving just in case your conversations at the table went overboard – politically or otherwise – nonetheless, it’s never too late.
I first had one of these cocktails at a posh-type gala in New York City, and even though my bank account did not match my elegant and over the top feeling, girrrrl I was flying HIGH! And, I can honestly say that this ruby red Rossini Cocktail had a whole lot to do with it. Because, you know, I was drunk. 😅 Y’all know that when you’ve had a few, the sky is the limit! 👊 #truth
But here’s how this pretty mess comes together: First, get yourself a good quality bottle of Prosecco. Second, combine strawberries and sugar and lemon juice in your blender and give ’em a whirl. THEN, combine all of that in a shaker with ice, stir, shake lightly, and pour. THAT is IT! Seriously, it takes minutes to make and seconds to inhale.
Pour it into pretty champagne glasses, decorate with strawberries and rosemary, and voila!
ALSO? Don’t think too hard about your New Year’s Eve cocktail because this Rossini should be IT!
