I definitely like bubbles in my drinks so any kind of sparkling beverage is usually my first choice. Champagne is a given but, even though it's the New Year's Eve tradition, prosecco will also do just fine.
And while I'm happy to drink it plain, I was going through my freezer and found the remains of a can of lemonade concentrate that I had used for a photography project. Frozen lemonade champagne? Sure! Why not? I blitzed it up in my blender along with some cranberry juice and tons of ice. Then I topped it off with the remains of a bottle of prosecco I had.
So, is there really a difference between champagne and prosecco? Yes, there is and I've now made this drink with both. While both are bubbly, they are made from different grapes and come from different regions - champagne from northeast France and prosecco from Italy. But I love them both and this sweet and tart sparkler might be my new favorite New Year's Eve drink. Cheers!
