I've featured all kinds of different drinks in my weekly cocktail column, but I always comes back to bubbles. Bubbles will forever be my favorite! There is something about popping that cork that gives me such a thrill. So, while I won't stop experimenting with different types of cocktails, you can count on a healthy dose of bubbles being sprinkled in. And my one of my favorite kind of bubbles is Prosecco. Since I'm in a celebratory kinda mood, I decided to crack open a bottle and see what I could whip up.
I landed on a simple Pear Prosecco Cocktail. My kids are all kinds of obsessed with pears, so we tend to have them on hand more often than not. I mean any time I can get them to eat a fruit or vegetable, I'll buy their obsession of choice in spades. Haha! So, I had some nice juicy pears ready and I just love any kind of cocktail that I can throw fresh fruit into!
4 oz Prosecco
1-2 oz pear nectar juice
pear slices for garnish and/or to enjoy in the drink
