Cranberry, Clementine, and Prosecco Cocktails

I get a little bit crazy when I drink champagne.  But I do love it so!   But I also love Prosecco, which is Italy’s famous sparkling white wine with a delicate fruit flavor and aroma.  Prosecco rivals champagne (in my humble opinion).  Produced in northern Italy, where my family lives, it is especially delightful when combined in this oh-so-festive cocktail, “Cranberry, Clementine, and Prosecco Cocktails!  When you are looking for Prosecco, look for the town names of production on the label to ensure quality, primarily from Valdobbiadene and Conegliano, Italy.

And I’m also crazy about cranberries and clementines that are both in season at the same time.  And with this post, it goes without saying that I’m crazy about prosecco too!

So after being in the market this week and bringing home more cranberries and clementines, I thought that I’d pop the cork off of a chilled bottle of bubbly and celebrate . . . well, nothing in particular . . . just to celebrate the day, how’s that?

It’s sunny outside, a little chill is in the December air, a fire is crackling in the fireplace and I’ve just received flying colors from my annual end-of-the-year doctor and dentist visits. Those are good enough reasons to celebrate at 57 years old!!

I hope that you enjoy these Cranberry, Clementine, and Prosecco Cocktails with family, guests, or even yourself to simply celebrate life!

Here’s lifting my glass to your good health too!

Salute’ !

    This is a really pretty cocktail. I must admit I’m more of a wine drinker myself (not a fan of carbonation) but I do have a bottle of sparkling wine from my trip up to Napa Valley. I wonder if I would do the same thing with what I have :)

    I am so doing this, pinning this and enjoying it. I have all I need – believing Prosecco and celementines and cranberries are December staples. And congrats to youand doctor’s visit. I know you worked for it!

    I love that you did this not for an end-of-year celebration, but just because. And a good health result from the doctor is always reason to celebrate. Happy drinking.

    Oh Roz. This looks delicious. I feel like having a party just so I can have these. We’re all waiting to hear if my sister is going to Japan. That will depend on whether or not we have a family Christmas get together. If not, I might make myself one of these anyway.
