Prosecco-Mint Floats - Tanti Auguri, Terri!


When a foodie blogger pal Terri, of Love and Confections, asked for us to post recipes to help her celebrate her 30th birthday, my first thought: youngun'! My second thought: prosecco. My favorite celebration memories always involves Italian bubbles.


Here's what the rest of the crew brought to the party!

I decided to add some gelato for a truly festive libation.


So, this is for you, Terri. Tanti auguri a te!


Ingredients
  • mint gelato
  • prosecco
  • fresh mint leaves



Procedure
I use a mini scoop so that it fits in a narrow flute. But you can use a spoon as well.

Place 1 or 2 scoops of gelato in the flute. Top with prosecco. Pour slowly so it doesn't overflow! Garnish with fresh mint leaves. Serve immediately.


That's it. Hardly a recipe, I know. But it's easy and fabulously delicious. Note: you can get creative with this. When I was undecided about the flavor combination, I put the question out on social media. The array of answers I got was inspiring: white nectarine, mango, lemon, and more. I think summer stone fruit gelato would be wonderful. Think bellinis. But the mint was calling my name and I'm glad I tried it.

What flavor combination would you put in your flute?!
