11 Cocktails to Make With 1 Bottle of Prosecco

Don't underestimate what one bottle of bubbly can do.

Often pigeonholed as Champagne's cheaper, cheerful cousin, Prosecco adds fruity flavor and crisp acidity to some of our favorite pre-dinner and brunch cocktails. With the rise of the spritz, Prosecco has been enjoying a real moment in the spotlight, but it can be tricky to find the bottles worth spending your money on. Looking for the Superiore DOCG designation on the bottle is a great way to find outstanding Proseccos at your local grocery or bottle shop, and it's worth considering the context in which you're planning to enjoy your bubbles; whether you're making a Negroni Sbagliato, which calls for bittersweet Campari and sweet vermouth, a classic Bellini, or a floral Sirene Spritz.

Here are our favorite Prosecco cocktail recipes.

Sgroppino Cocktail Recipe

Topped with a bit of lemon zest (or a lemon wheel) and served with colorful paper straws, the drink feels childlike and joyful. The recipe couldn’t be easier to pull off, and while many frozen, alcoholic concoctions require the use of a blender, the soft consistency of sorbet makes whisking by hand both quick and simple for those of us with meager upper body strength.

A light-pink-hued cocktail made with Prosecco or sparkling wine and fresh peach puree, the Bellini is ready for all your boozy brunch needs. Akin to the Mimosa, the Bellini blends a more fruit-forward sparkling wine with tart and sweet peach.

Campari is the slightly bitter cousin of Aperol, an Italian aperitif known as the star ingredient of the popular Aperol Spritz. Here, we swap out the slightly sweeter Aperol with Campari, and mix in a little blood orange juice, Prosecco, and grapefruit flavored sparkling water for an altogether refreshing cocktail. Make on a hot summer day, sit back, and dream of sitting in a café on the Italian Riviera.
