Stretch out summertime with this sultry sparkling sipper made with top-quality Prosecco. D.O.C.G. Prosecco makes the perfect hip, and reasonably priced, sip for lunch, brunch or celebrations.
The fine print: only Proseccos bearing the D.O.C.G. designation are authentic Prosecco wines, produced under strict quality controls in the 12,000-acre Conegliano-Valdobbiadene region outside Venice. Paris Hilton aside, who needs canned, imitation Prosecco anyway, when the real thing runs around $15 a bottle?
At her Sonoma, California, restaurant, Estate, Sondra Bernstein’s latest summery cocktail features chilled Prosecco laced with blackberry-lemon verbena syrup. That’s a pairing guaranteed to add fizz and fun to just about any gathering.
Try Sondra's recipe for Abruzzo...it's like summer in a glass.
