If you are looking for a bright, festive cocktail this holiday weekend try a Rossini. It's a wonderful alternative to a Bellini and makes a fun addition to a tableful of colorful Easter eggs. You'll need a bottle of Prosecco or dry sparking wine and some strawberries
A little tidbit for you - The Rossini is named after the famed Italian opera composer, Gioacchino Rossini, author of The Barber of Seville, among others. The sparkling drink was created at Harry's Bar in Venice along with the other famous cocktail, the Bellini. Cin Cin!

1 bottle of Prosecco or dry sparkling wine
about 15 fresh strawberries, halved or 2 cups of frozen strawberries (defrosted for about 15 min)
teaspoon of sugar
1 fresh lemon
In a small bowl add strawberries mix with a tiny bit of sugar. Allow to sit for about 20 minutes and then put into a food processor. Spoon 2-3 tablespoons of strawberry puree into each glass and top off with Prosecco. Add 1-2 drops of fresh lemon juice to brighten up the flavor and stir gently. Garnish with fresh strawberries if you have them. (For a non-alchoholic version use sparkling water instead)
