Add some pizzazz to your holiday party with this healthier Pear Prosecco cocktail.
This one is sort of a play on a mimosa. Enjoy it at a brunch party or in the evening.
What’s a party without bubbly?
There’s something about the fizz of a sparkling drink that puts me in a festive mood. Prosecco is a great base to use. It’s a drier sparkling wine so it’s easy to build the flavors you want without the risk of it becoming too sweet.
I’m not encouraging anyone to hit the bottle.
However, enjoying a glass or wine or a beer in moderation is perfectly acceptable. If you drink, keep in mind that moderation is considered 1 drink per day for women and 2 per day for men. That drink is defined as a 5 ounce glass of wine, 12 ounce beer or 1½ ounces of liquor. Now, I know what you’re thinking… No. You can’t save them all up for Friday night. This is a use ’em or lose ’em deal.
I’m sharing this cocktail as an easy option for holiday gatherings. It looks so elegant but takes just minutes to put together!
For this one, I used the pears I had leftover from my Maple Ginger Pear Crumble. You can use apples, berries, grapes or any fruit you have on hand. Add a little fresh ginger for even more flavor. I kept this one simple because the pears were super sweet and full of flavor.
And here’s a tip. Freeze the fruit to keep the drink cool longer.
You can easily make this into a mocktail using fresh ripe pureed pears or pear nectar and sparkling juice or club soda.
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh pears
- 1/2 cup fresh pear puree or pear nectar
- 1 bottle Prosecco sparkling wine
Add the chopped pears evenly to the glasses.
Add the pear nectar evenly to the glasses.
Fill the glasses with your favorite Prosecco. Cheers!
