Hi Everyone! It’s Nicole, Annette’s web-manager and friend, and I am thrilled to be guest posting today to bring you a festive holiday cocktail: pear prosecco punch.
In my house, I always make a huge Christmas brunch to enjoy after opening presents. The feast starts with sausage balls & pigs-in-a-blanket (oldies but goodies) and coffee for breakfast while we all tear through gifts. Late morning, I pop everything in the oven, and we sit down to a huge brunch complete with berry French toast, quiche, fruit, and of course, a festive cocktail.
This is the best cocktail for Christmas brunch, but it’s also perfect for any party this season. It’s great for a crowd because it’s just a few simple ingredients. You can place everything on a bar cart, or designated bar area, with framed instructions and let guests mix their own.
One trick: freeze a bag of cranberries and keep them on hand in your freezer. Warm prosecco (or wine or holiday punch) isn’t tasty. Frozen cranberries can be used in place of ice to keep your cocktails cold. They won’t water-down your beverage, and they’ll look festive, too!
Let me know if you give this a try! I’d love to hear what you think. Happy holidays!
Pear Prosecco Punch
You will need:
– 2 oz Pear concentrate (I use Looza)
– 4 oz Prosecco
– Rosemary sprigs & frozen cranberries for garnish
Pour pear concentrate into a champagne or wine glass. Top with prosecco. Add a rosemary sprig and frozen cranberries for garnish.
