My favourite festive fizz…
What’s a celebration without some bubbles?! Prosecco is always the go-to drink for me and my friends, it’s hella cheaper than champagne and always makes everyone giggly after a couple of glasses. I always say it gets you the best kind of tipsy but gives you the worst hangover (but somehow I never care about latter until the next day…)
For occasions like New Year, I find myself wanting something a little sweeter – even just to switch up the flavour… so it’s lucky that prosecco is the easiest base for any cocktail!
For this lovely little number, I always look to my favourite Edinburgh Gin Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur; the ginger is subtle but gives it a lovely kick, with the rhubarb taking centre stage.
This really is the easiest creation, so I jazzed it up with a super sparkly glitter rim. I use this stuff usually, but for this I used this prosecco glitter which can also be added to the drink for a bit extra shimmer.
To start, take two fancy glasses (I prefer champagne saucers) and lay out two side plates. Put a coin-sized blob of honey on one plate and some edible glitter on another, then quickly run the rim of the glass through the honey and then the glitter to make a glitzy rim!
Next, add a shot of the rhubarb liqueur or syrup to the glass and top up with prosecco. To finish, add a sprig of rosemary to garnish – you get a little hint of it every time you take a drink and it is delish!
Isn’t that the easiest cocktail recipe you’ve ever come across?! The glitter rim takes them to the next level, a little extra magic to impress your gal pals.
Let me know if you’ll be making these tonight, they really are the most dreamy drinks. Have a safe and fun New Year whatever your plans, here’s to starting 2019 in style!
