As you know, for my Daughters Birthday I made Cocktails for them – I thought this weekend I would make some more – for us this time 😋
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’ 🍹
· 150ml Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG, Aldi, £7.99
· 20ml fresh orange juisce
· 1 cup frozen whole strawberries
· 1 teaspoon honey
· Garnish with fresh strawberries or oranges
· Blend all ingredients together until smooth
· Garnish with orange slices and/or strawberries as desired
· Serve immediately
This is lovely and refreshing, like a grownup slushy
don’t forget to top the strawberries and freeze them overnight.
Perfect for a summer evening in the garden with friends – Cheers!
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 😜
250ml Frozen good quality coffee
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
Pour into glasses garnish with a few coffee beans and enjoy…..
what are your favourite Cocktails?
Please note We are having food with this – just burgers and salad for me, jacket spuds for Hubby – well you have to have a balanced diet 🤣
