How to Celebrate National Prosecco Day

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

Step 1
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.

Step 2
Before serving, slowly pour prosecco into peach mixture; stir gently. Serve in glasses over ice. If desired, drizzle with a little grenadine syrup.
