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.
Want to impress your friends at your next brunch get-together? Try serving a few options of fresh sorbet alongside the prosecco for a make-your-own bellini bar. You'll look like a total all star.
It's scary how perfect this freaky take on a Bellini is for kicking off your Halloween weekend festivities. The Basic Witches give this simple recipe two broomsticks up.
A sparkling wine-based cocktail traditionally served in the northern part of Italy during "apertif hour". Essential to the spritz is an Italian bitter orange liqueur such as Aperol, which is in the same family as Campari but a little less bitter and a little more refined. This Simple Aperol Spritz is fairly low in alcohol, luckily, because it goes down a little too easily! Cin cin!
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.

So if you’re like me, you don’t just settle for two brunch cocktails.

And I’m pretty positive it will do the same for you, which is why I’m sharing it.
