I truly enjoy entertaining, but let’s face it, by the time you’ve finished prepping, pouring, and plating, it’s likely that you’ll end up feeling like a drowsy zombie. And that’s no good if you actually plan on enjoying time with your company. To help you guys out a smidge with your at-home-entertaining, I’ve come up with a prosecco cocktail, and appetizer recipe that will have you out of the kitchen in about 10 minutes or less.
The cocktail I created calls for VOVETI prosecco and maraschino cherry juice. For those of you who aren’t familiar with VOVETI, it’s a chic, modern Italian prosecco that embodies affordable luxury and classic style. As an added perk, VOVETI is upscale and affordable, ideal for everyday pairings or chic entertaining with friends. My cocktail, which I’ve dubbed the “Cherry Fizz” is perfect for a girl’s game day get-together, Sunday brunch, or any other gathering with friends. It’s sweet, tart, and has a nice amount of fizz thanks to the addition of VOVETI, which is a collaborative effort between the Collavini family and the Ferrer family. Each family brings four generations of sparkling wine expertise to the table.
To accompany my “Cherry Fizz” cocktail, I whipped up a cucumber-jalapeno salsa, which I served with pita chips. It makes for a light, tasty snack, and is also ideal for pairing with VOVETI. I used pickled jalapenos for my salsa, but you can also use fresh jalapenos.
Check out the recipe for the “Cherry Fizz” and cucumber-jalapeno salsa, below. Cheers!
