Red Velvet


Every Christmas morning we have brunch and some sort of bubbly cocktail. It started out as mimosas. Later it evolved into prosecco with pear liqueur or St. Germaine.

This year my brother was here for Christmas, a first ever. He introduced us to prosecco and framboise lambic (a Belgian raspberry beer).

Leave it to Nick to get me to drink a beer and prosecco cocktail! Ok, I do actually like a raspberry beer. It tastes more raspberry than beer.

What isn’t to like really, bubbly and raspberry?! This version is less sweet than just adding a raspberry liqueur. And I must say I actually like it better. Who would have thought!!

This would be perfect for a little Valentine’s celebration. Who doesn’t want a pretty red drink for that special day?! It’s also gender neutral, Josh liked this drink a much as I did!

Next time you’re looking for a prosecco cocktail, give this a try. It’s easy to make and soooo good.

You don’t really need a recipe, fill your flute less than half full with the framboise and then top off with prosecco. All flutes aren’t equal in size, what’s important is to have a little more prosecco than framboise.

Since I’m so nice though I’ll give you a “recipe” anyway. Some people like to see it in recipe form after all.  Enjoy!
