Sparkling Mint Lemonade with Prosecco is just anything you need to thirst yourself on hot summer days. A refreshing cocktail to enjoy all the summer days. Truly light, revitalizing packed with citrusy and mint flavours and lots of bubbles. What more to dream of?
I adore Prosecco.
Late warm summer evenings are just ideal to serve one of the best tasting sparkling lemonade. Such associations are hard to forget. I simply adore dreaming and talking with my husband about everything with a glass of such a delicious beverage.
Some simple ingredients that are almost available in my kitchen will make one of the cocktails simply irresistible. Also, I adore serving this great cocktail with my friends when I give parties as it is simply so fancy and so tasty.
Some mint leaves, lemon zest, and simple ingredients will make your glass of sparkling lemonade look gorgeous and bubbly.
It is cool, refreshing, and just perfect for summer days. The traditional sparkling lemonade is alcohol-free, that can be done more easily and cheaper. However, I like the prosecco-version better as the taste is much more lovely and heady.
Easily decorate this fancy and nice-looking cocktail with lavender, thyme, mint, or rosemary. The stunning decoration filled with the sparkling lemonade will look out of this world. I adore serving gorgeous, as well, as delicious, cocktails. Summertime libation – more than words can say.
Can you make sparkling lemonade alcohol-free?
Traditionally speaking, sparkling lemonade can be made both versions. With alcohol or without alcohol is at your discretion. If I make sparkling lemonade for my daughter, then normally, I make it alcohol-free. She adores this sparkling lemonade filled with different berries, fruits, and herbs. She likes to play with this cocktail.
However, when it comes to parties or romantic evenings, then definitely some alcohol is added to my sparkling lemonade. Here you can add Prosecco or any Champagne you like, gin, tequila, or some liqueurs. It depends on your preferences. I adore this sparkling lemonade paired with Prosecco, as the bubbles are simply irresistible. Try my version and get convinced.
Why is my lemonade fizzy?
Sparkling lemonade is fizzy because it contains lemon juice that is an acid. Some Champagne, or simply water, combined with lemon juice gives off carbon dioxide – thus producing bubbles. An amazing view and a tasty drink.
Is sparkling water healthy?
Sparkling water has no sugar and is healthy as still water. Even though in my family, we are not a fan of sparkling water, still I add some when I make sparkling lemonades, Aperol Spritz, or other cocktails. This is the only moment I drink sparkling water. I know many people like sparkling water- they find the fun of it. It is optional to either add or skip it when creating amazing cocktails.
