Christmas Prosecco Cocktails FAQs
How do you serve Prosecco at Christmas?
Serving prosecco at Christmas is an art! Start by chilling it to perfection—around 45°F (7°C). This can be done in an ice bucket, or use the fridge if you’re feeling extra fancy. When it comes to glassware, go for flutes. The tall, narrow shape helps preserve those delightful bubbles. For an extra festive touch, garnish with a twist of citrus peel, a few pomegranate seeds, or even a sprig of rosemary.
Is Prosecco good for Christmas?

It’s like giving your taste buds a gift!
What is good mixed with Prosecco?
Mix it with peach puree for a classic Bellini, or add a splash of Aperol to create the ever-popular Aperol Spritz. Feeling adventurous? Experiment with elderflower liqueur, pomegranate juice, or even a hint of lavender syrup. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination.
