Bubbles make everything better, don’t you think!?
I love Prosecco, and I love lemonade. The two together are a delicious dream! Thanks to crazyforcrust.com I found this fantastic lemonade prosecco punch recipe! It is a great summer drink to have out by the pool, birthday party, a bachelorette party (face it, summer is basically another name for bachelorette party season) or even on the first day of spring when it is snowing outside! Wishful thinking that warm weather will soon be upon us here in Grand Rapids, MI! haha
Most importantly, write down or better yet, PIN this recipe right now because we all know you will lose that piece of paper in your abyss of a purse when you get to the store. Trust me, after reading this you are going to be running to the store just so you can make this over the weekend, or tonight, no judgments here!
Bubbles (prosecco) in my opinion make everyone feel fancy haha. You get to drink out of a classy glass, and you feel very sophisticated and relevant. That’s how we should feel all the time! We all are chic, modern and important people in this world! I think a little bubbly gives us the push we need to feel that love! Therefore, It is one of my go-to drinks! Prosecco is so versatile, and you can mix it with anything and call it a Mimosa, Sangria, punch or any other fun name to make drinking at 10:00 am acceptable! haha
Being the prosecco connoisseur that I am..or like to think I am. LaMarcA is by far my favorite. It is reasonably priced and is usually on sale. To sum up, It is a nice middle of the row prosecco that tastes delicious and doesn’t break the bank. I love drinking it by itself with nothing to dilute the “taste,” and it’s great for mixing with just about anything! My twin sister Sydney and I got together this weekend, and we used LaMarcA in this recipe, and it did not disappoint!
I forgot the lemonade!
To sum it all up, I was so excited to make this punch that I forgot to buy the lemonade at the store! It was written down on my list and everything! Does anyone else do that? I can be pretty scatterbrained at the store even with a list in front of me. Meanwhile, I meet up with my sister, oblivious that I’m missing a key ingredient. We make a few stops one was at a grocery store believe it or not and I thought I had everything I needed.
I’m driving to her house, mind you, my sister lives out in the country so stores are few and far between and it hits me. I FORGOT THE LEMONADE! Of course, I couldn’t have remembered while we’re at, I don’t know, the grocery store! Where I walked down the juice aisle! So I call her and say…”Hey, funny story, I forgot the lemonade.” and treat myself to a long trip into town, get the lemonade and drive back to my sister’s house. At this point, I have gone through a lot of trouble for this drink, and I’m thinking to myself this drink better be worth it! Haha.
Was it worth it?!
Well, I’m here to tell you it most certainly was! First, combine the LaMarcA Prosecco, vodka (I was just as surprised as you are that there is vodka in this) and lemonade to a gallon sized pitcher. Next, add the frozen blackberries and mint. This drink looked so beautiful that I didn’t want to stir it haha. Stir it, and it turns a gorgeous pink color. The mint and blackberry add a nice touch of sweetness and flavor. Most importantly, the prosecco gives it the carbonation I love, so it doesn’t have a flat taste. It tastes even better once it has sat in the fridge for a bit. Now, I know you are just dying for this recipe, so here it is!
Lemonade Prosecco Punch Recipe
- 4-6 cups prepared lemonade
- 1 bottle Prosecco ( I used LaMarcA)
- 1/3 cup of citrus vodka ( I used Titos that I had on hand)
- 1-pint blackberries (or preferred fruit)
- Three sprigs of mint
- Stir lemonade, prosecco, and vodka together in a pitcher. Add blackberries and mint. Add Prosecco. Serve over ice. The longer it sits, the more the flavors will infuse and the better it tastes! You can store it in an airtight container for up to 2 days!
