Today marks one year since I started this blog and published the very first post. Happy blogiversary to me! So, given that I love cocktails and prosecco - they are what I drink when I'm celebrating, I thought I'd pop together a collection of prosecco cocktail recipes that you can make in minutes, and probably drink within minutes too!
Half fill a champagne flute with chilled prosecco, top with chilled orange juice.
It doesn't get much simpler than that, cheers!
Add 15mls of Crème de Cassis to a champagne flute, top with chilled prosecco.
Optional: Garnish with a slice of lime. Enjoy!
Dry July is well underway now and for those who are participating, kudos to you. I love everything that Dry July stands for and all that it does to help and support those affected by cancer, however I have yet to participate myself. Why? Well despite how it may appear, writing a wine blog and all, I don't actually drink alcohol every single day, but I feel like if I were to try and abstain from consuming wine for an entire month a couple of not-so-nice things might occur. One being that I might make it to the end of the month - woo hoo, 31 days alcohol free and then bam, party time - and I might just find myself over indulging and making up for lost time. Hangovers are definitely not my thing. The second being that if I can't enjoy a sip of my favourite wines for an entire month, I could very well become difficult (or should I say more difficult - haha) to live with and I'd really hate to see my Mr Whine & the Tiny Whinies become homeless for July. I mean, right in the middle of winter - that's just cruel, it's freezing outside.
But, back to those who are participating, I totally applaud you and if you are looking for some delicious beverages to sip on while you complete the challenge, here are some yummy mocktail recipes that will tide you over until you reach your goal.
Wining and whining my way through life.
