I don’t fancy myself a mixologist. I do, however, love a good drink with a meal! This summer, shake up your backyard bevvie and get a little fancy with this strawberry ginger basil prosecco cocktail.
It’s super easy to make, even if it sounds or looks complicated! It’s as simple as muddling some ingredients and adding Prosecco! Well, it’s a little more specific than that, but that’s basically the gist of it!
If these flavors don’t jive with you, hopefully it inspires you to start mixing sweet and savory ingredients with your drink of choice whether it’s mojitos, sangria, or a somethin’ bubbly.
