If you’re over 21 then you must rush to the kitchen and make this Lemonade Prosecco Punch for your next party. Thanks to GiltCity.com and La Marca Prosecco, I’m bringing you a simple party punch that all the adults will LOVE!
Okay, my friends. Are you feeling the heat of summer yet? It’s the end of July, which means we’ve been in triple digits off and on for weeks, my A/C is running full time and I’m ready for fall. Unfortunately, I’ve got at least 8 weeks of the horrible sweaty heat before we get any relief. (If this year is true to form, we’ll all be complaining about how hot it is and how tired we are of the heat up until about October 15 and then it will be cold and raining on Halloween. Mother Nature has a very ironic sense of humor.)
Since it’s so hot, we tend to do two things all summer: we live in the pool and we get out of town often. I love entertaining, so we’re trying to have more pool parties. I love being the hostess, for obvious reasons. Every party needs a signature drink and I think that, from now until infinity, this Lemonade Prosecco Punch will be the one I serve. It’s crisp, light, refreshing and it tastes like you’re drinking juice.
Lemonade, Prosecco, Vodka, Blackberry, and Mint – it’s a bubbly Sangria recipe that everyone is going to fall for, and it only takes about 5 minutes to make a pitcher of it!
I have a thing for Prosecco; I absolutely love it. I had never heard of it or tried it until last fall and I was in love at the first sip. Prosecco is a sparkling wine that’s made in Italy. Since last November I’ve tried lots of brands and I can honestly say that La Marca Prosecco is my favorite. (I’m not alone either: it’s also America’s favorite Prosecco!) Alone, La Marca is clean and crisp and has just the right amount of bubbles and sweetness. When you turn it into a bubbly Sangria Party Punch?
Oh. My. Word. Make sure you make a double batch so that you have enough to go around!
This drink is 5 minutes from stirring to drinking. La Marca Prosecco gets mixed with lemonade (use your favorite, I like using a low calorie kind) and vodka (again, use your favorite, I like using citrus infused vodka). Then you add frozen blackberries to keep it cold and fresh mint for some extra fresh flavor. It’s yummy as soon as you mix it but the flavor just gets better as it sits. La Marca’s mantra is to make every day sparkle and this punch will do just that!
(Don’t like blackberries? Use your favorite fruit! Adding it frozen keeps the drink cold without having to use ice.)
Since our trips are mostly over for the summer I’m going to have to have lots of pool parties to deal with the heat. We just got back from our anniversary trip to San Francisco and if I’m being honest, I didn’t want to come home. We always find something new and fun to do in the city; someplace to walk or shop or dine. Before we left last weekend I made sure to check out GiltCity.com to see if they had any fun deals in San Francisco. Gilt City offers it’s members access to experiences in select U.S. cities, all at insider prices. If you’re looking for a fun night out or an unforgettable experience on your next trip, be sure to check them out, here: www.GiltCity.com. Also stay tuned to Gilt City in Augst for more details on how you can cool off or soak up the Miami Sun at the La Marca and Gilt City Soundtrack of Summer Pool Party!
And then you should come home and make this Prosecco Punch. I’m serious, you guys. This is a super keeper recipe!
Bubbles make everything better, don’t you think?
Lemonade Prosecco Punch
- 4-6 cups prepared Lemonade I used a low calorie kind from the grocery store, chilled
- 1/3 cup citrus vodka you can substitute regular flavor
- 1 pint blackberries or your favorite berry, frozen
- 3 sprigs fresh mint
- 1 bottle 750mL La Marca Prosecco, chilled
- Stir lemonade and vodka to a gallon size pitcher. Add blackberries and mint. Add the Prosecco. Serve over ice. The longer it sits the more the blackberries and mint infuse in the flavor, like sangria.
- Store leftovers tightly covered in refrigerator for up to 2 days.
