#5 Prosecco – an Italian Sparkling Wine

Since we are part of a large Italian family on my wife’s side, Prosecco has always been a part of our holiday libations. This sparkler has all the beauty and taste of a French Champagne or a California Sparkling Wine, but with a slightly sweeter, fuller bodied taste. Prosecco stands up well to the inclusion of liqueurs to make a Champagne Cocktail or as the base for a great Bellini or Mimosa breakfast cocktail.
