Yummy prosecco, that crisp, bubbly beverage goes down well with brunch or dinner. Ok, it is great at any time of the day! Prosecco blends well with sweet and citrus mixers, thanks to the type of grapes that create it. Since we’re in the thick of the summer, it’s a great time to make some light & delicious Prosecco cocktails.
What is Prosecco?
Hailed from Northeast Italy, Prosecco is a one of Italy’s finest sparkling wines. In the past, grapes that made this delicious bubbly were called both Prosecco and Glera. The thin-skinned grapes are green and gown in the Veneto and Fruiuli regions of Northern Italy.
As you know, champagne is also a bubbly. So, why is Prosecco called a wine and not a champagne? Well, the major difference between Prosecco and other sparkling wines like Champagne is how the bubbles in the bottle are made. There are many different ways to get that CO2 into a bottle of wine.
Champagne bubbles: The most expensive way to get a bottle of bubbly is through a technique called the traditional method. The winemaker fills a bottle with still, dry wine, and then adds yeast and sugar before it is sealed. As the yeast consumes the sugar, it gives off CO2.
Prosecco bubbles: With Prosecco, this doesn’t happen in every bottle. Instead, it happens in a big tank. Wine is added to a pressure tank, then yeast and sugar added. When the desired pressure is reached in the tank, the wine is cooled.
Prosecco keeps the grape’s perfume and freshness through this process.
