Christmas Prosecco Cocktails
Pop the prosecco and pour the festive fizz. These six cocktail recipes will put the sparkle in your Christmas celebrations, whether you’re hosting a three-course dinner party or just a simple get-together with nibbles and drinks.
Prosecco is a sparkling white wine, originating from a small region named Conegliano Valdobbiadene in northeast Italy. Preferably enjoyed in a champagne flute (if on its own), the bubbly goodness has in recent years become synonymous with party drinks and celebrations. So let’s raise a glass to our Christmas-themed round-up of fizz cocktails. Remmeber that if you can’t find anything that takes your fancy, there are plenty more options over in our collection of prosecco cocktails.
If you’re a ginger fan like us, the Ginger Sparkle Prosecco is a top choice. Not only does it taste like a Christmas dream, but it looks like one too. Celebrating with friends? They’re about to be wowed. And if impressive is the concept you’re going for, try our Pinkster Royale too. The name speaks for itself.
There’s also the Pear and Cinnamon Fizz which feels like a festive high five at every sip. The sweet pear juice mixed with sparkling prosecco serve up a flavour that’s reminiscent of ice lollies but in cocktail form. It’s seriously delicious and a fresh choice if you’re getting bored of the more typical Christmas drinks.
Time to grab your flutes and carry on scrolling to see what ideas might make it onto your festive drinks menu. Want to make them all? Then you have our blessing. Whichever drinks you decide to rustle up, we’re confident they’ll be a smash hit with your guests (and yourself). Cheers to that.
Donner and Spritzen
Guinness, prosecco and Schweppes Soda Water. Yes, you got that right. It might not be the most obvious mix, but trust us when we say that Guinness and prosecco is a match made in fizz heaven. With a splash of blackcurrant cordial in the mix, this is a festive drink you’ll be thinking about until Easter.
Ginger Sparkle Prosecco
Our friends at Tastemade are spreading festive cheer in the form of a sparkling ginger cocktail, made with prosecco, lemon juice, ginger cordial, sugar and edible glitter(!) Speaking of ginger, why not turn up the Christmas feels by serving this drink with a stack of gingerbread biscuits on the side? You’ll find plenty of great recipes under the Recipes tab on our site.
Between the spiced rum, grated nutmeg, cinnamon and clementine juice, the Mulled Fizz feels like Christmas in a glass. Most of the flavours come from the homemade spiced syrup, which is combined with rum, clementine juice and port before being topped with prosecco.
The gin and bubbly combo is sweet and delicious, and the raspberries on top finish the drink off perfectly. It’s quick to make, so you can serve these up in moments at your Christmas parties.
The Ultimate Aperol Spritz
A refreshing Italian aperitif with an iconic orange hue, this is what all-around cocktail perfection looks like. Perhaps more common in the warmer months, an Aperol Spritz works just as well during the festive season, with the sliced orange adding zing to your drink and festive feels to your party. You could even pop in a few lime wedges if you’re feeling wild.
Pear and Cinnamon Fizz
This sophisticated cocktail is bursting with Christmas cheer is sure to keep you warm in winter. Pear juice, lemon and prosecco are combined in perfect proportions and served in a cinnamon-sugar rimmed glass to add a sense of occasion. Fresh and festive, what’s not to love?
