The weather is warming up and more + more events are starting to pop up on my weekend calendar. From brunches to bridal luncheons and baby showers to Spring dinners and birthday parties it seems there is always room for a nice classic cocktail. This one is simple but always makes a beautiful presentation.
I love the fizz of a nice glass of Prosecco or something bubbly. The clean and crisp taste makes it very nice to sip on and is a great “starter” to get your event going.
Sometimes for a party, even a classic can use a new and fun twist. I gathered just a few more ingredients (and this gorgeous vintage coupe glass!) to turn a plain ol’ glass of Prosecco into a fancy cocktail for you.
Elderflower, which is the flavor in St. Germain, is just the most beautiful little hint of floral flavor. I think it adds just the right addition of flavor profile and depth to the cocktail to keep in fresh + signature. And the freshness + aroma of the thyme with those delicate little leaves just feels so sweet and elevated to me. Any excuse to use herbs!
Spring Elderberry + Prosecco Cocktail :
1 bottle Prosecco
1 bottle St. Germain
A few springs of fresh herbs (one per glass)
Using your favorite serving glasses, pour about 3/4 way full with prosecco. Next, add just a splash of St. Germain to really make the flavors pop. Lastly, garnish each glass with a fresh herb spring. I used thyme and it went really well with the other flavors.
This cocktail is so easy to make and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. What are your favorite spring cocktails to make for special occasions? Let me know in the comments below.
