The Christmas and New Year's holidays are just around the corner. Now is the time to finish planning your holiday dinner menu's and holiday parties. To help you along, we're featuring two delicious & festive holiday wine cocktail recipes with all of you.
1 bottle of Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore DOCG
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup sugar
3 whole cloves
3 whole allspice
2 cinnamon sticks
Rinse lemon and orange and thinly slice them, discarding seeds; quarter the orange slices. Put fruit in a 4- to 5-quart pan. Add honey, sugar (use the smaller amount if you prefer drinks on the tart side, the larger if you want a sweeter flavor), cloves and allspice. With a knife, cut the cinnamon sticks lengthwise into thinner strips. Add cinnamon and 2 cups water to pan; bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and boil gently for 5 minutes. Pour Prosecco into hot citrus base and heat until steaming, about 8 minutes. Keep warm over low heat. Ladle into heatproof cups or wineglasses.
Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore DOCG
1-2 ounce St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
2-3 drops Angostura bitters
Lemon rind (as garnish)
Place St. Germain Elderflower liqueur into a cocktail glass and add drops of Angostura bitters. Fill glass with Santa Margherita Prosecco Superiore DOCG to mix. Top with twist of lemon.
