Gin and Prosecco Cocktails

Prosecco and sparkling wines make excellent bases for cocktails especially fruit based. Gin and prosecco (gin and champagne too) work well together because the relatively delicate flavours of prosecco don’t overwhelm the gin.

We have made suggestions for some cocktails you can enjoy now autumn is here and as winter approaches. They’re all quick and easy to make and you don’t need any special equipment. Cheers and enjoy.

Sloe Gin Cocktail

This cocktail is also known as a sloe-secco or a sloe royale. Essentially you’re replacing cassis and champagne, with sloe gin and prosecco. The result is a wonderful cocktail for autumn afternoons. Sloe Gin can sometimes be a bit heavy on its own, adding some prosecco lightens the mood while still allowing you to enjoy the rich flavours from the sloes.

Ingredients

  • 25ml sloe gin
  • 150 ml prosecco

Method

Pour the sloe gin over some ice in a tumbler. Top with prosecco and stir gently. Serve immediately.
