Poinsettia Prosecco Instructions
The Flavor Harmony
Behold, the symphony begins with 1.5 oz of cranberry juice, painting the glass with the romantic hues of a setting sun. Then enters the half oz of Cointreau, a citrus ballad that weaves through the silent spaces, echoing the tender kiss of dawn.
The Garnishing Touch
Yet, what is a melody without its crescendo? The Bella Principessa Prosecco DOCG, chilled as the first snow, cascades into the mix, each bubble a sonnet of joyous celebration.
List of Ingredients
- 2 oz (60 ml) cranberry juice
- 1 oz (30 ml) orange liqueur (such as Triple Sec or Cointreau)
- Chilled Bella Principessa Prosecco (about 4 oz or 120 ml)
- Fresh cranberries or orange peel for garnish (optional)
- Ice cubes (optional)
- Chill Your Glassware: Start by chilling the glassware you’ll use for the cocktail. You can place them in the freezer for a few minutes, fill them with ice water, and let them sit while you prepare the cocktail.
- Prepare Your Ingredients: Measure out the cranberry juice and orange liqueur. Add ice cubes to your glass if you like a colder and slightly diluted cocktail.
- Mix the Base: Pour the cranberry juice and orange liqueur into your chilled glass. Stir them together gently with a cocktail stirrer or a long spoon.
- Top with Prosecco: Slowly pour the chilled Bella Principessa Prosecco over the back of a spoon or tilt the glass to let it gently flow on top of the cranberry-orange mixture. This helps create a layered effect and preserves the bubbles.
- Garnish: If desired, add a few fresh cranberries or a twist of orange peel to the top of the cocktail for a festive touch.
- Serve: Serve your Poinsettia Prosecco Cocktail immediately while it’s still bubbly and cold.
- Enjoy Responsibly: Sip and savor your delicious Poinsettia Prosecco Cocktail responsibly. It’s a perfect choice for holiday celebrations and gatherings.

The Blending Ballet
The magic is unveiled in the graceful embrace of a flute, where ice serves as the silent audience to a ballet of flavors. Cranberry’s tartness waltzes in unison with Cointreau’s citrusy embrace, each step and pour choreographed to perfection.
Presenting the Jewel
