I had to share this with you while there are still gobs of fresh figs and raspberries in the stores (and in my yard!)
I absolutely love a light bubbly prosecco cocktail and this one is perfect for a late Summer gathering. It is so pretty and fruity, but not too sweet. I love the addition of the brilliant red-pink raspberry syrup, but you could certainly just lace the chilled prosecco with the fresh fruit on its own.
I am thinking that a couple of you might be interested in a simple and delicious drink like this for all of the gatherings this coming weekend. Please enjoy!
Recipe: Raspberry Fig Prosecco Punch
- 2 Tablespoons Raspberry Simple Syrup
- 6 fresh raspberries
- 1 large fig thinly sliced
- chilled prosecco
- Raspberry Simple Syrup
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup raspberries
- For the Simple Syrup combine the sugar, water and raspberries in a small pot and simmer until the sugar dissolves and the syrup thickens- about 5-7 minutes. Strain the syrup and discard the pulp. Refrigerate the syrup for up to two weeks.
- In two chilled glasses put a tablespoon of syrup in each glass, and split the raspberries and figs between them. Fill the glass with chilled prosecco.
