I don't know about you but I need walks by the sea and aperitifs at sunset: that's why today I leave you the recipe of a summer cocktail based on Prosecco rosé Campari and berries. A “summer drink” (English definitely makes more atmosphere). If you follow me on Instagram and Facebook you will know that I have finally furnished the balcony and that I have given up on diy by discarding, repainting and giving new life to used coffee tables and furniture. Well, from what we have the new balcony every day we prepare a cocktail for aperitif, and this right now is one of the most popular. Together with Spanish Red Sangria.
Preparing a good cocktail or long drink is not difficult, but you have to achieve a certain balance between the ingredients. I don't like overly alcoholic drinks, and Gianluca knows it: so now he knows he has to prepare something with a lot of tonic water, lots of fruit and lots of ice. In this case we mixed the new Prosecco Doc Rosè and little Campari Rosso, for a really wonderful bright red color. Inside berries, crushed ice and a little brown sugar. I tell you right away that addictive: a jug goes away in 10 minutes. To accompany him, you can choose a platter of cold cuts and cheeses but also fresh fruit and creamy cheese, for a tasty but lighter aperitif. Never let me then give you the urge to dine!
If, on the other hand, you are inspired by the idea of aperi-cena (word that I honestly hate) you can do a couple of pies. Like that yogurt and peppers, the puff pastry with Parmesan cheese And the salted rice and tomatoes cake. You'll see what a success.
The doses you find are for a person, so be careful of quantities if you want to prepare summer cocktails based on Prosecco rosé Campari and berries for two or more people. And I suggest you do some anyway’ more, because it's fresh and light and comes down that's a beauty. And now I wish you good day!
90 milliliters of tonic water
30 milliliters of Red Campari
100 milliliters of rosé wine (also sparkling wine)
10 grams of brown sugar
berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, more)
crushed ice, to taste
fresh mint, to taste
The process of preparing the summer cocktail based on Prosecco rosé Campari and berries is very simple. I suggest you keep the glasses in the refrigerator at 4 degrees for 1-2 hours, so that the liquid does not buy temperature once poured.
You can use both normal ice cubes, both a granatina prepared by blending with a good blender the ice cubes and little cold water, or rather frozen.
The first ingredient you have to put in the glass is brown sugar, better if it's the ultra fine one, because it will melt perfectly. Then add some fruit: strawberries, more, raspberries, blueberries. Also cut in half so that some of the juice disperses into the glass.
Now add the ice in abundance, then Prosecco Doc Rosè and tonic water. The red Campari must be added at the end: mix with one or two rounds of teaspoon and you'll get a magnificent fire red cocktail. Decorated with fresh mint to taste and a strawberry cut and resting on the edge of the glass. Serve immediately! And now good aperitif!
