Berry Tempting: Strawberry and Prosecco Muddle

May 10 2010 - 4:15pm
Most of you love muddled cocktails [1] and I'm a huge fan, too — especially if irresistible strawberries are involved. This weekend I pulled out the muddler and made a delicious cocktail with strawberries, homemade simple syrup, Prosecco, and lemon. If you don't have a muddler, you can easily use the handle of a wooden spoon. I made a big batch of simple syrup [2], so I can whip up cocktails quickly all month long. This refreshing mixed drink is perfect for sipping throughout the sizzling late Spring and early Summer. Want to make one for yourself? Keep reading for the recipe.
