Clementine Prosecco Cocktail

Celebrate winter's citrus season with a sweet bubbly cocktail that is light and refreshing - my clementine Prosecco spritzer.

We go through a lot of citrus in the winter months. I can't eat enough ruby red grapefruit or syrupy sweet clementines. These small Mandarin oranges are easy to just peel and pop in your mouth. They are bursting with citrusy sweetness.

I like to pair bubbly Prosecco and elderflower liqueur with the fresh squeezed juice from a Clementine orange to make a simple yet tasty cocktail.

While I was making this recipe I discovered I was missing some of the ingredients. I swear I just cut a clementine so I could juice it.

Someone in my house is been naughty! I can't leave anything on the counter. Indy is the latest addition to our household. He is the sweetest golden retriever puppy but he is ornery and loves food. Did I mention he LOVES food!

He's gotten himself in trouble many times because of his love for food. This time it was only half of an orange. And at least the clementines weren't booze infused. 🍹

He's actually snatched a cooked chicken off the counter top. I wanted to knock his block off. He's allergic to chicken! We are working on that! But look at that face :)

It makes food blogging kind of tough especially during photo sessions. Thank goodness for his crate and the LEAVE IT command.

Back to the cocktail....this delicious cocktail is also easy to make with any kind of citrus substitution. Grapefruit, oranges or lemons are delicious in this drink. The elderflower liqueur adds floral notes and takes the edge off the tart flavor.

Are you a fan of clementines?
