Ever since my friend Mercedes introduced me to Valdoro Prosecco a few weeks ago, I have been finding myself straying from the beloved red for the crisp, fresh bubbly.  Now don’t get me wrong, I would never leave red behind, but I know I will be enjoying some more prosecco on the up-coming summer nights.

Prosecco is a dry sparkling wine from the prosecco grape (grown in the Veneto region of Italy).

I love it on its own, but I also love adding some fruit to my bubbles every now and then. Mixing some prosecco with a splash of juice proved to be delicious, extra-pink, pretty & full of antioxidants. (Ok, full of might be a stretch)

Prosecco Cocktail:

Here is a toast to Friday and the weekend!

    This looks so refreshing. I will definitely be making this for our Baptism Brunch. My sister in law loves prosecco – this will be perfect.

    Great photo of you. It’s fun to see who’s behind the scenes of all this deliciousness.

    Have a super weekend Emily!

    Dragonfruit and mangosteen juice? No need to even convince me with the antioxidant info, I’m in! :)

    “Full” may be a stretch, but not that far! Mangosteen and dragonfruit? That’s some powerful stuff! I’ve never had dragonfruit but I’d love to try it. Especially in bubbly prosecco. What a great start to the weekend! :)
