Aldi kindly sent me a bottle of their gorgeous Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, I am not just saying that because they sent me it, it’s something I buy whenever we have something nice to celebrate – for £7.99, to me it tastes as good as any Champagne 🥂 They asked me to try one of their Cocktail recipes ‘Frozecco’  🍹

Kir Royale

For another Prosecco combination, what about a Kir Royale, this traditionally is a French aperitif made with Champagne and a splash of Creme de Cassis in the bottom of a champagne flute

It is just as fabulous with the Prosecco – an amazing aperitif for a summer dinner party 🍾

As I was in Cocktail making mode, I will also share one of my favourites too – this is a strong one, not for the feint hearted 😜

Expresso Martini

250ml Frozen good quality coffee
100ml Vodka
30ml Coffee Liqueur
30ml Franjelico (Hazelnut liqueur) *optional

You could use 50ml very strong expresso and 200g icecubes – I froze 250ml strong coffee overnight.

I add all of this to the Thermomix and whizz for a few seconds on speed 7

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
