Prosecco & Chambord Cocktail

We had dinner guests last Friday, and I wanted to serve a light, cooling, refreshing, not too sweet cocktail to kick off the night. I had a bottle of Prosecco on hand and a bowl of raspberries in the refrigerator and thought..." this could be a pretty great combo".  So, I combined ice-cold Prosecco in a large pitcher with Chambord (red & black raspberry liqueur) and added a large handful of fresh raspberries. I poured the mixture into large, chilled, ice-filled glasses garnished with fresh mint. The result? Delicious.

I love how easy it is to prepare this cocktail. It pairs well with appetizers, and because it is not too strong, the drink is perfect for brunch, lunch or pre-dinner appetizers.It doesn't hurt that it is absolutely gorgeous too. Give it a try; I have a feeling you will be making this all summer. Enjoy!
