MAKE IT A COLOURFUL AFFAIR - MAKE YOUR OWN PROSECCO COCKTAILS
Prosecco Based cocktails can be great for lot's of occassions. Firstly they bring a burst of colour to the party. Prosecco is naturally lower in Alcohol than other sparkling wines, so it lends itself well to aperatifs and parties where the cocktails and wines may be flowing. Generally alcohol content ranges from 10.5% - 12% ABV. These cocktails are made with using most of a glass of prosecco, and adding a dash of your freshly made mix at the end. The end result is all dependent on the quality of the ingredients you use. We try to use fresh ingredients where possible. Sometimes that isn't always possible when fruit is out of season, so you can substitute fresh peaches for tinned ones etc. WineOnline.ie Supply freshly made mixes for customers having parties or planning receptions where Prosecco will be served, as it creates a fun addition to the whole day - We send out free newsletters monthly by email with recipes, special offers, and interesting food and wine related events, you can sign up below for free.

De-stone the peaches and Juice the Fresh Limes. Freshness is so important here to deliver on the flavour. Remove pulp from Passion fruits seeds and all add combine all ingredients together in a blender.
Whizz it up until combined and smooth and then ideally pass through a sieve. If you have a strong blender this is not 100% necessary but I like to do it so you don’t get any bits floating in you drink and stuck in your teeth.
