Prosecco Cocktail with Rose and Elderflower

September 5, 2019Sew White

This is an easy way to turn a glass of Prosecco into a cocktail. My prosecco cocktail with Rose and Elderflower is perfect for sipping for parties. A great party drink that is easy to make and even easier to enjoy.

This is a lovely and very romantic drink perfect for engagement parties, weddings and summer parties too. I used the gorgeous iridescent champagne glasses I was given for my birthday. They have a great purple and pink shimmer which works so well with the baby pink roses.

Easy Prosecco cocktail

This is a super quick cocktail and I think you can have a good few glasses made up in a matter of minutes. The easy Prosecco cocktail in this recipe is exactly that – easy. Add the rose syrup and elderflower cordial to the glass and top up with the Prosecco.

Easy Cocktail using Prosecco

Making an easy Prosecco is exactly that – easy. Prosecco can be used for so many drinks and I love adding different flavours to it to see what I can create.

Pimping up prosecco is a lot of fun and a great way to flavours and colours to the drink when you serve them. I went for a delicious combination of rose syrup and elderflower. The fruity and floral mix is one that I love. It’s a very easy way to forget it’s alcoholic.

Pouring prosecco into the champagne glasses with elderflower and rose syrup for the Prosecco cocktail

I used the Fentimans Rose Syrup which is available on amazon and some supermarkets (we found it in ASDA). It’s a beautiful flavoured syrup which also smells incredibly like fresh roses. I find that it is not too sweet which also works well with the elderflower which can be a bit over sweet sometimes.

I created this for a friends wedding as something that would be easy to get ready with the elderflower and rose in the glasses done before hand which would then just be topped up with Prosecco. It can also work really well with lemonade if you want an alcohol free version. I’ve also tested it with children and it got a massive thumbs up. Especially in the iridescent glasses which they said made it look more mermaid-y. I think that is a good thing.

There are a few ideas I have for Prosecco cocktail with elderflower. You can keep it simple just with elderflower, add rose too like this recipe. Or one that I have enjoyed a few times recently is Prosecco, elderflower and passion fruit. Raspberries and elderflower in Prosecco work incredibly well too.

When should I drink Prosecco?

I find this a great questions. Prosecco can be drunk at any time of the day really. It’s great for a bubbly brunch, posh lunch, evening celebration and so much more. I don’t think there are many opportunities in the day which Prosecco wouldn’t improve. By adding different flavours to the Prosecco you can tailor make the Prosecco cocktail to be more fitting to the time.

This recipe for the Prosecco cocktail with rose and elderflower is a soft fruity drink which is perfect for events. I have made this for the engagement parties and I know one lovely reader has used it at their wedding. The soft pink purple colour adds a lovely splash of colour to a table or event.

What goes best with Prosecco?

Prosecco is a hugely versatile drink to use with other flavours and things like liqueurs and juices. This recipe I use rose which adds a sweetness to the sometimes sharp Prosecco. Elderflower also used in this recipe softens the Prosecco and I find makes it a lot easier to drink. Not that it was difficult to enjoy in the first place.

2-ingredient Prosecco Cocktails

Although I use three ingredients for this recipe if you can’t find the rose syrup or the elderflower then use the other with the prosecco and enjoy. You can create a 2-ingredient Prosecco cocktail with either Prosecco and elderflower cordial. Or create a 2-ingredient Prosecco with the rose syrup. Both will work beautifully, but combined together it will be even more delicious.

Decorating ideas for Prosecco

Make sure you use roses which are clean and don’t have any pesticides on. These were little ones growing in our garden. *please don’t eat them*. They are decoration only. If you don’t know if it’s edible, don’t eat it.

You can buy edible roses and edible rose petals online which are perfect for drinks. You can find some lovely ones available which will look lovely in the drink or balanced on top. There are also some treats like sprinkles which you can add to the bottom of the glass which are edible and pretty. Including dried rose petals, lavender, gomphrena globosa, jasmine, chrysanthemum, lily, forget-me-not, dianthus caryophyllus too. It’s lovely to add a little something extra to the glasses.

Of course there is also so many fresh fruit little things which you can add in too. Fresh raspberries, strawberries, blackberries… the list goes on.

cheers to a great romantic rose bubbly champagne drink.

If you want to add a little extra sparkle upgrade the prosecco for real Champagne! It really makes the fizz even more exciting.

    What a beautiful drink, and such lovely photos too. This has my name written all over it! And it’s perfect for using non-alcoholic sparkling wine too (most of my family are tee total), so everyone can drink it. Wonderful!5 stars

      Oh you would love it Camilla, I’m using it in so many bakes and drinks at the moment. I think I prefer it to rose water for flavour in bakes.
