I love Prosecco and this one is good on the palate and the pocket. Best value for the price.
Prosecco is not Champagne, although both are sparkling wines. The main difference is that only sparkling wine crafted in the Champagne region of France can be officially called Champagne. Prosecco is made in Italy with the glera grape and uses a different method for creating the bubbles.
Prosecco tends to have stronger fruit flavors and tends to be a bit sweeter than Champagne. You can find prosecco in many different styles, but the most popular styles are dry (brut), extra dry (extra brut), and the driest wine possible (brut nature).
Yes! Sparkling wine is the key ingredient to this classic cocktail. Just make sure to find a dry prosecco, not a sweet one to craft the optimal cocktail. Prosecco tends to also be far more budget-friendly than Champagne.
