Delicious and glamorous cocktails are in vogue once again! Why not surprise your family and guests with something a little more adventurous.

This cocktail originated in the American deep South and it is usually made with white or dark rum but for this Christmas celebration I am going to add Prosecco to the mint and sugar to make a refreshing cocktail.

Enjoy the bubbles and the lingering flavours of this perfect summer cocktail!


  • 6 sugar cubes
  • 20 mint leaves
  • a bottle of Prosecco
  • 1 cup of sparkling water


  • In a mortar crush the mint and sugar cubes.
  • Spoon in each Champagne glass a full tablespoon of the mixture.
  • Fill the glass with Prosecco.
  • Add some sparkling water.
  • Stir the mixture with a bar spoon.
  • Decorate the glass with mint leaves and maraschino cherries.


  • Despite the simplicity of this cocktail the sugar and mint will bring life to the Prosecco. You do not need to buy an expensive bottle to make this cocktail.
  • The sparkling water is optional to give the drink an extra fizz.
