About 8 years ago we had some neighbors from Germany living next door and became really good friends with them. They had a daughter that was in my son’s grade so we spent a lot of time together. The wife was ALWAYS drinking sparkling white wine- Prosecco!
I had never even heard of it, but she was a GREAT neighbor and always shared! Now today, everyone is drinking Prosecco! It’s crazy how popular it’s become in the last couple of years. We always have some in our fridge. Scroll down to get the recipe for these yummy sparkling cranberry shots. You are going to LOVE them!
Riondo Prosecco is perfect for a fun holiday party, de-stressing after work or just relaxing after a tough day fighting the crowds while Christmas shopping. It’s also perfect when you want something a little more than just plain wine. You don’t have to save it for a special occasion!
Take a close look at the top- it’s a screw cap! Now, if you only want a glass or a cup to make this recipe, you can close it back up tight and save the rest for the next night! But really, does that happen much? 🙂
Riondo is great just out of the bottle or you can do some simple mixes. Riondo Prosecco Cocktails are easy to make. My favorite is with a little pomegranate juice mixed in. We were having the neighbors over so I thought I would try something different.
I decided to try making some sparkling cranberry shots. I had never tried it out before so I was curious how it would turn out.
Sparkling Cranberry Shots
- 1 3 oz. package cranberry gelatin
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1 cup Riondo Prosecco
- Bring water to boil.
- Add gelatin to a 9″x9″ pan and pour boiling water. Stir until gelatin has dissolved.
- Add Riondo Prosecco and stir well.
- Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours or until firm.
- Once firm, cut into squares, sprinkle some sugar on top and serve.
These turned out to be a hit. Everyone loved them, even the beer loving guys. I can’t wait to make these again for Thanksgiving and Christmas with my family. I know a couple of sisters-in-law that are going to go bonkers for these!
