Everyone needs a couple of decent recipes for Prosecco Cocktails – that’s a fact. Whether you’re planning a gossipy girls’ night in, want some cheeky aperitifs before a large night out, or your planning a party for friends and family, you need to brush up on your skills!

Prosecco is yummy on it’s own, we agree. We’re with you. But this sparkling Italian wine is also the perfect mixer thanks to its light and fruity taste. The dryness of this fizz means it can substitute for champagne in most cocktails. It is also easier on the bank account due to its inexpensive price tag. Try combinations of elderflower, ginger, grapefruit or pomegranate for a surprisingly sweet aperitif. Your stock will go up a couple of points with your guests as they sip, smile and try and work out what the flavour of their Prosecco Cocktails are!

We’ve scoured the web and pulled together for your ease and convenience (because we’re all fundamentally lazy, let’s face it), 18 of the very best Prosecco Cocktails!

With ingredients and instructions there should be no excuse . If you’re the mixologist, you get to sample as you go along (obvs). 😉

Prosecco Royale

Prosecco Cocktails - Lemon and ThymeOne of the most recognised Prosecco cocktails, this is a classic. A great place to start if you’re a beginner. Mix one part crème de cassis with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (preferably freshly squeezed, no pips!). Top with three parts of your favourite Prosecco. For an extra dash of personality, take a sprig of thyme and skewer a couple of blueberries or raspberries and drop into the glass.

Rosecco

Rose-ecco. Get it? See what we’ve done there? We believe this one was invented by Sophie Dahl. If you don’t know who she is, look her up. Take glass and fill with Prosecco. Pour a tablespoon of rose syrup down the inside of the glass so that it slides to the bottom. A tasty, visually appealing cocktail!

Fizzy Bakewell

Prosecco Cocktails CherriesIf you’re a fan of Cherry Bakewells, the delicious Peak District cake, you’ll love this! Firstly, soak a cherry in Kirsch (or you can buy them ready-soaked if you’re lazy). Add the cherry as well as two teaspoons of Kirsch in the bottom of a Prosecco flute.

The main body of the drink is then three parts Prosecco and one part Amaretto Disaronno (the world’s favourite Italian liqueur – amaretto-tasting with a characteristic almondy taste). This is a great cocktail for the Autumn or Winter, as it feels very warming.

Hibiscus Prosecco

The hibiscus is a showy, flowering-plant native to many warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions. It is the national flower of Haiti, and also represents the Solomon Islands, South Korea and Malaysia.

Hibiscus is available in supermarkets or online, and can be bought either dried or in syrup.

Take a hibiscus flower in syrup, and add one flower (with one teaspoon of syrup) into a glass. Pour over your favourite Prosecco. Feel free to leave the flower in, as you’ll find it has hints of raspberry!

Pear Prosecco

Some Prosecco cocktails deserve a decorated glass – this is one of them. Take a champagne flute, dip the rim into a saucer of water, then into a dish of caster sugar and ground cinnamon. Turn the glass over, take a jar of stem ginger and add one tablespoon of ginger syrup into the glass. Top up the glass with fizzy Prosecco and pear juice. Garnish with a slice of stem ginger.

Raspberry Prosecco Bellini

You’ll need some raspberry liqueur for this one. Pour one part liqueur into a Prosecco flute. Add fresh basil (from your garden, ideally!) and top with four parts of your favourite fizz. Ideal for a late spring or early summer cocktail.

Forager’s Fizz

Foraging is the art of searching for edible resources in the wild. This cocktail reflects some of the wonderful treats which can be found in bushes and hedgerows. Take a splash of sloe gin (a liqueur made with gin and sloe berries, a relative of the plum), add a fresh blackberry or two, and top with fizz. (It tastes even better if they come from your own garden or nearby!)

French 77 with Prosecco

Prosecco and Elderflower CocktailAdd some Prosecco for a decent spin on the classic cocktail, the French 75. Place one part elderflower cordial, one part fresh lemon juice and one part gin in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake like Tom Cruise or Bryan Brown until well-mixed.

Strain into a tall glass or champagne flute. Top with your favourite Prosecco and either a slice of lemon or some fresh mint. It doesn’t get much more summery than this!

Lemon Sherbet Fizz

If you like your Prosecco Cocktails with a bit of tang, where your lips recoil over your teeth from the sharpness of citrus flavours, this one’s for you! The Lemon Sherbert Fizz is a mouth-watering, frothy cocktail. Take a heaped teaspoon of lemon sorbet and place (delicately, or it will go everywhere) into a tall champagne flute. Add a few drops of lime cordial. Top with cold, fizzy Prosecco and stir quickly!

Prosecco English Garden

Prosecco Cocktails English GardenThe ideal drink for a long Summer’s afternoon. The sound of crickets chirping and Wimbledon coverage on in the background. Elderflower cordial, gin and Prosecco is a quintessentially English refreshment. Take around 20ml elderflower cordial (or liqueur if you want something a little punchier) and 20ml gin (Hendricks is a great choice), and top with ice-cold prosecco. Decorate with fresh mint if you can.

Cranberry and Maple Fizz

Flavours of Christmas and Canada are combined here! The juicy sweetness of the maple syrup and the tartness of cranberry are a revelation. In a cocktail shaker, take 2 teaspoons of maple syrup and pour over ice. Add around 50ml of cold cranberry juice. Shake, and strain into a glass. Top up with 100ml of your favourite Prosecco. Stir, serve and drink!

Grenadine and Prosecco Cocktails

This cocktail recipe is a little more involved (you have to use a blender and a hob – gasp!) but the results are just delicious. You’ll need 4 pomegranates, 100g of white sugar, 3 lumps of brown sugar, 1 lime and of course a bottle of your favourite fizz.

Prosecco Cocktails PomegranatesFirstly you need to juice the pomegranates. Use either a citrus press/squeezer or take all the flesh out of the fruit, blend it and sieve out the pips. Definitely no pips!

In a pan, dissolve the caster sugar in two tablespoons of water. Simmer until you have a reasonably thick syrup. Stir in the pomegranate juice and – voila – you have fresh grenadine.

You’ll need to cool before using, so cover with clingfilm or put in an air-tight container, and place in the fridge for around 30 minutes minimum.

Break the sugar lumps into largish pieces (about the size of a frozen pea) and drop into a champagne flute. Add a measure of your fresh grenadine and a slice of lime. Top the glass up (slowly, the sugar will make it really fizz)

Ruby Red Bellini

Reddish in colour and with sweet blackcurrant flavours, this is a dangerous-looking cocktail! Combine together 20ml of fresh pomegranate juice, 20ml crème de cassis and 20ml of vodka. Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker and pour into a long glass. Finally (of course) top up to taste with Italian fizz.

The Wizard of Oz

Yes, unsurprisingly, this suggestion is a little green! Lime, prosecco and ginger together is an unusual but very refreshing drink. Take 25ml of syrup from a jar of stem ginger. If you don’t have this, a ginger wine or liqueur will do as good a job. Pour the syrup into a champagne flute, top with ice-cold prosecco and stir. Garnish with a slice of lime, for a last dash of green!

Paddington’s Prosecco

We’re going to need more marmalade! If you’re a fan of Michael Bond’s wonderful character, Paddington Bear (more recently epitomised in two blockbuster movies), as well as experimenting with Prosecco cocktails, read one!

Definitely a good choice for either a great winter cocktail, or something to warm your heart at the end of a balmy Summer’s day, when the temperature begins to turn colder.

Warm up a teaspoon of marmalade (yes, orange jam!) along with honey and one clove. Stick with it, even though you’ll fee you’re making mulled wine! Strain after heating and allow to cool. Pour into a tumbler, add a tablespoon of fresh orange juice and – if you like a wee dram – a shot of whisky liqueur. Top up the glass with 100ml of chilled prosecco. Serve and enjoy!

For a slight variation, try swapping out the marmalade for mango chutney. Fruity!

Italicus Bergamot Cocktail

Prosecco Cocktails ItalicusThis refreshing floral cocktail has some premium quality ingredients and would be lovely for a special occasion or garden party.

The Italicus aperitif champions the flavour of bergamot (that’s the floral hint you can taste in Early Grey tea). It also has hints of lavender, citrus and rose.

Take 50ml of Italicus (a double shot) and pour over ice. Top with Prosecco. Serve with green olives. That’s it!

Sparkly Sorrento

If you’ve ever spent any time in Sorrento, off the Amalfi Coast, you’ll know the water just shimmers in the sun. This is the perfect drink to accompany a languorous day on the beach or visiting coves by yacht. It also combines two quintessentially Italian flavours!

Take 30ml of chilled Limoncello liqueur and pour into a champagne flute. Top up with ice-cold Prosecco. Decorate with lemon, or this also works very well if the glass has a with a sugary rim.

Aperol Spritz Cocktail

Prosecco Cocktails Aperol SpritzOne of the ultimate Italian tipples. Aperol, originating from Italy, is an infusion of roots and herbs tasting of orange and rhubarb. A brilliant aperativo for the end of a busy day!

Fill some tall or balloon glasses with ice (ideally cubed, it looks smarter). Pour 75ml (three parts) Prosecco over the ice, followed by 50ml Aperol (two parts). Finish with a splash of soda water. Garnish either with a slice of orange, or, if you want to replicate how the Venetians do it, with some green unpitted olives on a stick.
