Pimp Your Prosecco: 10 Prosecco Cocktails To Make At Home

It came, it saw, we drank it all. Rumour has it that Prosecco has almost run out because of too much rain or something so before it really has disappeared from the supermarket shelves leaving a big cork-shaped hole in our hearts and a huge Champagne-shaped hole in our wallets, bulk buy whatever’s left and make these cocktails…

Bellini

4 peeled peaches

Prosecco
