Strawberries and Prosecco become an exquisite, aromatic, and festive cocktail with the addition of Limoncello and rose water. It assembles easily and you can muddle the strawberries and sugar a few hours ahead and chill until serving time.
1cupsliced strawberries plus a few extra slices for optional garnish
1 750ml bottleProsecco
1 1/4 teaspoonsrose water
In a wide bowl, muddle the strawberries with the sugar until the berries are well crushed (a potato masher works well). Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
To make each drink, add 1 or 2 ice cubes to a wine glass. Add 1½ to 2 tablespoons strawberry mixture, about 4 ounces Prosecco, and a splash (about ¼ teaspoon) each of Limoncello and rose water. Gently stir and garnish with a strawberry slice if desired.
