Drinking champagne cocktails with the girls is one of my favorite ways to spend a weekend morning.  No responsibilities.  No kids – left ’em at home with dad!  Just a fizzy drink in and hand a my best girlfriends.  This is one of those cocktails.  Think of it as a spin on a bellini.  Crisp prosecco pairs beautifully with fresh bluberries and a hint of lemon for a fabulous cocktail!

If you have a weird thing about drinks with floaties, first is say really?!  Mojitos, bellinis, sangria.  All amazing!  All have floaties.  But if your guests are picky, make sure your puree the fruit until it’s as smooth as you can get it.  Then pass the puree through a fine sieve to remove any large chunks.  You’ll be left with a super smooth puree, you just might need to make a double batch since you’re loosing some of the mass.  Better yet, make your puree a head of time and have it on hand for whenever the mood for one of these little babies strikes!

Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 6 ounces (about 1 cup) fresh bluberries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 or 2 lemons
  • 6 ounces good prosecco (I used Menage à Trois)
Instructions
  1. Add the blueberries and sugar to a food processor (or blender). Puree until smooth. *If you don't like the fruit pieces, as pictured, pass the puree through a sieve.*
  2. Add ½ to 1 tablespoon puree to a coupe glass.
  3. Slowly pour prosecco over the puree until the glass is full, being careful not to overflow.
  4. Using a paring knife, carefully cut a piece of lemon rind off the fruit. Hold the rind over the glass and twist to release the fruit oils. Drop rind into glass. Enjoy!
Notes
You'll have extra blue berry puree so you can have multiple drinks. I don't recommend mixing the prosecco and puree in a pitcher. It's an easy enough cocktail prep that making them to order is better, and you won't lose the lemon influence.
