The Bridal Procession Continues – Signature Batch-elorette Cocktails


Still on the hunt for the perfect signature cocktail for your bridal shower or reception? Italy is famous for its classy aperitif cocktails featuring that national treasure — Prosecco. Festive and helpfully lower in alcohol, Prosecco cocktails are a great option for cheersing at any of your bridal events. One of our all-time favorite bubbles for cocktailing, La Gioiosa Prosecco DOC, is the ideal balance of fruity yellow apple, white peach, and lemon, with a bright and buoyant bubble that will stand up to all kinds of modifiers, from juices to amari.

The Bellini – Bright and breezy

A classic, elevated alternative to the more brunch-appropriate mimosa, the peachy inspiration behind the Bellini lines right up with summertime celebrating. In Venice, where the Bellini was invented by a well-loved local barman, peach season is booming from June to September, providing a juicy, friendly platform for Prosecco to shine.

  • 5 oz peach puree
  • La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco
    • 1 bottle La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco makes 5 cocktails.

Combine in a pitcher and provide a swizzle stick or spoon to keep things well mixed. Alternatively, pour peach puree into individual fluted glasses and top with La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco, stir.

The Aperol Spritz – Citrusy and complex

Don’t let anyone tell you the Aperol Spritz is over! It looks like Golden Hour in a glass and it’s zesty flavors and mouthwatering aperitif style make it a legit crowd-pleaser. Originating in the gastronomic capital of the Veneto in Northern Italy, it’s a lovely foray into the Italian notion that a little bitter makes the whole world sweeter. 

  • 12 oz Aperol
  • 4 oz lemon juice
  • La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco
  • club soda
    • 1 bottle La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco makes 8 cocktails.

Combine the first four ingredients in a pitcher with ice, stir. Serve over fresh ice and top with a splash of club soda; garnish with lemon twists.

The Negroni Sbagliato – Unexpected and bold

It’s a good sign when a sparkling wine is able to step in for one of the spirit world’s most complex flavor profiles. Purportedly one of those happy accidents that births a new classic, the “sbagliato” (or “mistake” in Italian) in question first occurred when a bottle of Prosecco was mistaken for gin during a Negroni build. The result was an unexpected three-part harmony of Campari, Italian red vermouth, and bright, bubbly Prosecco — a less-broody still-boozy spin that’s ready to party.

  • 12 oz Campari
  • 12 oz Italian Red/Sweet Vermouth
  • La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco
    • 1 bottle La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco makes 12 cocktails.

Batch the spirits only in a pitcher with ice. Pour over fresh ice in rocks glasses to serve, topping each with 2 oz La Gioiosa DOC Prosecco. Garnish with an orange wheel.

Cin cin to the brides!
