Even though this special day falls on a weekday, it’s certainly worthy of raising a glass to celebrate! As the most popular sparkling wine in the US, National Prosecco Day was created to enjoy the summer months.
Whether you’re drinking a glass of prosecco on its own or indulging in a popular prosecco cocktail, there’s really no wrong way to enjoy this bubbly sensation. We recommend you try a peach prosecco punch – that’s equal parts easy and delicious – and a perfect way to cool down in this hot summer weather.
Prosecco-Peach Punch Recipe
Ingredients for a pitcher
- 1 16 ounce package frozen unsweetened peach slices
- ¼ cup sugar
- 2 ½ cups orange juice
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 750ml bottle of prosecco, chilled (shown here, WC recommends either Canale or Valfonda Prosecco)
- Cubed or crushed ice
- (Optional) grenadine syrup
Thaw peaches at room temperature but do not drain. Place peaches and their juice in a blender or food processor. Add sugar. Cover and blend or process until smooth. Transfer pureed peaches to a 2-quart pitcher. Stir in orange juice and lemon juice. If desired, cover and chill for up to 24 hours.
Before serving, slowly pour prosecco into peach mixture; stir gently. Serve in glasses over ice. If desired, drizzle with a little grenadine syrup.
