So, aside from our obvious enjoyment of all things martini, the Shakers love a nice sparkling wine. Champagne, prosecco, cava…..each of them do the happy dance on our tongues.
As a bit of a break from the stronger drinks, Shaker One would like to introduce you to the first in a series of all things bubbly. Our favorite brands, tools, storage tips, bubbly friendly cocktail recipes….if it sparkles I’m determined to cover it. The world of bubbly is infinite and magical, so we shall take our time with this journey.
But to begin-Blackberry Prosecco Cocktail:
Fresh blackberries muddled with just a splash of Cointreau or Triple Sec, topped with prosecco and a bit of orange zest. I also threw in a few drops of Bitters, but if you prefer a sweeter experience leave those out. And of course you can use champagne or cava in place of the prosecco if you prefer.
Oh my, I do love berries in bubbly….as when you’ve finished drinking the liquid you get to fish them out, plump and succulent from their marination. They are the Crackerjack prize at the bottom of my glass.
Summer is just around the corner….the perfect time to stamp your libation passport with as many effervescent trips as you can take. Cheers!
