Prosecco Firefly Cocktail Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Sweet red berries and orange.”

Taste – “A nice balance of flavours that allows all of the ingredients to express themselves initially and beyond. You get the sweetness from the grenadine and sharpness from the grapefruit.”

Aroma – “Prominent pineapples with a hint of grenadine.”

How To Make A Piña Colada Prosecco Cocktail

In this video, I create a Piña Colada Prosecco Cocktail with help from VonShef and Voga Prosecco.

Ingredients
Prosecco
Pineapple
Coconut Milk
Pineapple Wedge

1. Combine the pineapple juice and coconut milk into your Cocktail Shaker.

2. Shake for about 10 seconds and then pour it into your glass.

3. Top up the glass with your Prosecco.

4. Place your pineapple wedge onto the side of the glass and enjoy.

There you have it, our final fun & easy Cocktail, I hope you had as much fun creating these Cocktails and drinking them as I did, the Piña Colada Prosecco Cocktail, let’s see how it tastes.

Piña Colada Prosecco Cocktail Tasting Notes

Aroma – “Prominent coconut with underlying pineapple juice.”

Taste – “A touch of fizzy and zesty yellow fruit initially which gradually flows into milky coconut/pineapple flavours.”

I later tried this Cocktail again, but by using a different Italian Sparkling Wine, and the results weren’t the same, using the Voga Prosecco gave this Cocktail a finesse that wasn’t replicated with the other Sparkling Wine, so its always useful to remember that Sparkling Wine will alter the Cocktail you create, if you are interested in the effects you can check out How Sparkling Wine Can Effect A Cocktail.
