Blackberry Lime Prosecco Cocktails

Refreshing is the best way to describe this delicious berry-lime cocktail made with Prosecco, a type of sparkling wine similar to champagne. Make a batch as a signature drink for a party, a summer grill out, or for something totally fresh and low in sugar. 

Servings: 6 cocktails 1x

Ingredients

  • ½ cup fresh lime juice (about 68 limes)
  • 6 ounces fresh blackberries (about 1 ½ cups), plus more for garnish
  • 24 mint leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon pure honey
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle Prosecco
  • Ice
  • 6 slices fresh lime, for garnish

Instructions

  1. To a pint-sized jar or 2-cup measuring cup, combine the lime juice, blackberries, mint leaves, and honey. Using a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon, mash the lime juice, berries, and mint into a jam-like consistency. 
  2. Pour the berry mixture through a fine-mesh strainer set over a large pitcher to remove the seeds and mint leaves. Using the back of a spoon, press the mixture firmly to release all of the juices, then discard the berry mixture left behind in the strainer.
  3. Add the Prosecco to the berry juice in the pitcher; stir gently to settle any foam that arises. Add 3-4 cups ice to the pitcher and stir again. Serve pitcher-style or divide cocktails among 6 tall glasses filled with ice. Garnish each cocktail with a few blackberries, a slice of lime, and a few mint leaves. Serve immediately.

Notes

Make ahead: You can complete Steps 1 and 2 (making the berry-lime simple syrup) up to two days in advance. Store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Prosecco is a light bodied, crisp, sparkling white wine. Use any brand that you like.
