We chose to use Bulldog Gin for the Asian Plum Spritzer because it's bright citrus and tropical fruit notes pair well with the slightly sweet flavors of the plum wine and prosecco. The yellow chartreuse and thyme add an unexpected herbaceous layer to this spring cocktail.
Place a large sphere ice cube into the bottom of a white wine glass.
Next, pour in your gin, plum wine, and yellow chartreuse.
Slowly stir with a bar spoon to combine.
Top with 3 ounces of Prosecco.
Garnish with plum slices and a sprig of fresh thyme.
Dill & Snap Pea Sake
Not every cocktail has to pack a high-alcohol punch to be delicious. This particular spring sipper features fresh cucumber, dill, and spring pea pods, along with low ABV Junmai sake. It’s light, refreshing, and sessionable. Cheers!
Originating in Italy, the classic Bellini is made with white peach puree and Prosecco. Many people now substitute other dry sparkling wines in the bellini recipe. Initially this drink was served only during summertime when peaches were in season. Now it's a brunch favorite throughout the year. If you're making your own peach puree opt for white peaches whenever possible for the best flavor.
Aperol is one of Italy's most popular aperitifs, and its signature Aperol Spritz is one of the most widely consumed cocktails there. Bright orange in color, it is sparkling and light, with an appealing bittersweet flavor of orange and herbs. Mixed with Prosecco and club soda, the Aperol Spritz is the perfect cocktail to enjoy with friends at brunch or happy hour.
