Prosecco (glera) is a white wine grape grown in the Veneto region of Italy. It’s used to make sparkling wines that are light-bodied, crisp and off-dry.
These wines mix nicely with liqueurs and fruit to create refreshing, sparkling cocktails that complement lighter fare. Serve one or more of these inspired flavor combinations the next time you entertain for brunch or lunch.
