The Hugo is a summery aperitif which originates from the South Tyrolean region of Alto Adige of Northern Italy but is also extremely popular in neighbouring Austria and Switzerland.

A Mimosa is a staple on the USA Sunday brunch scene and is traditionally a blend of Champagne and freshly squeezed orange juice. Here in the UK, we call the same drink a Bucks Fizz. The problem is, most Mimosas (and Bucks Fizz) swerve the Champagne in favour of cheaper sparkling wine and some don’t even use OJ that’s fresh. Our view: it’s better to go for a Bellini where you stand a chance of getting Prosecco and fresh fruit, since peach purée is less often found in cheap cartons of juice.

Margaritas are an easy drink to make in bulk and are therefore one of the best Prosecco cocktails for a crowd, such as a summer garden party or other special events. Just make sure you add the Prosecco as you serve each glass to keep the sparkle alive.

This is really going to come down to personal preference because no two pink gins are the same. We recommend reading the back of the bottle to see which fruits have been used to pink the gin. You might be surprised to see that the fruits vary widely from strawberry to raspberry to apple and even grapefruit and pink peppercorns. Choose the base flavour that you’ll enjoy. Or buy a couple and experiment.

Add the mint leaves, lime wedge and plenty of ice to a glass. Combine the elderflower syrup and soda water then top up the rest of the glass with a generous serving of Prosecco.

Italy and Mexico – not two nationalities whose cultures are usually combined – but it certainly works when you add Prosecco to the classic margarita. A match made in heaven.

Although it is almost always included in lists of Prosecco cocktails, the Prosecco doesn’t actually go inside the cocktail, but rather, by its side. Don’t worry, the Pornstar Martini recipe is still a quick one to put together.

A pretty, sparkling cocktail is simply the nicest way to greet your guests. Especially around the holidays. Picture yourself on the other end of the situation — when you walk into a party and there is a specific drink on offer, don’t you feel like a celebration has really begun? And also, that you should totally try it?

Don’t forget the extra sprigs of mint to garnish. A party cocktail with a garnish? Who’s the boss? You are.

So, what’s in this pretty pink drink? Pomegranate juice, which is easily purchased these days. Pom Wonderful is the brand you will most likely see at your supermarket. Leftovers can be mixed with sparkling water for a refreshing nonalcoholic drink all month long. Then some freshly squeezed citrus juices, which can be squeezed a few days ahead, some mint, some sparkling wine (don’t use the super pricey champagne for this, Prosecco or another less expensive sparkling wine is a-ok). Vodka, for a cocktail kick. Some lemon-lime soda. And then some fresh pomegranate seeds for a burst of sweet tart texture.

Which leads us to the pitcher drink. You may want to use two pitchers or carafes for this amount, unless you have a nice big one. If you use two, make the base, and before you add the sparkling wine, divide the mixture into two pitchers, and refrigerate one. Add the Prosecco and soda right before serving, and pour it over ice as you serve it up, so the ice doesn’t melt and dilute the drink, and it stays effervescent.

I am a huge fan of the pitcher drink. As much as I love creating cocktails and cooking, I feel like a shmo if I’m locked into prep mode while my guests are milling about. And frankly it doesn’t make your guests feel all that relaxed either, to see you (me) shuffling around incessantly, stirring and shaking and so forth. Yes, there are some things that have to be done last minute, but the more you can get done ahead of time the better, and that includes the drinks.
