August 13 is National Prosecco Day and this represents a time to raise a glass of the fizzy stuff to the remaining days of what has been a pretty dismal summer so far in the UK.
National Prosecco Day encourages people across the world to embrace life’s everyday celebrations, good news and recognise or reflect on the best bits of life.
Prosecco is a sparkling wine made from a variety of grapes. One of the oldest is the Glera. However, Prosecco can also be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir.
Most Prosecco is grown and bottled in the Veneto region of Italy, Prosecco’s appeal to the masses and amazing growth in popularity over recent years can be put down to its “mousse”, the lovely, persistent bubbles that raise elegantly through the glass from bottom to top.
Along with that touch of sweetness (usually dry) and light-bodied, refreshing aromas, Prosecco exudes an easy-going sense of fun. Flavours of white spring flowers, citrus fruits, and green apples paired with a budget-friendly price tag place Prosecco in the right place for any celebration.
Here at Rice Box, we have suggested 3 dead simple prosecco cocktails to give your fizz a bit of extra oomph with just one additional liquid to be added.
