Cherry Cucumber Prosecco Spritz

With summer in full swing, I’ve been looking for a delicious refreshing drink to cool down with in the evenings and on weekends. While I don’t imbibe often, when I do decide to, I love something cold and refreshing like a prosecco that’s so fun and yummy at the same time, especially in the summertime.

Delicious Riondo Prosecco

I recently had the pleasure of trying out Riondo Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine that’s crisp and fruity with a perfect amount of sweet. I love that it has a screw-top for easy drinking, so you don’t have to feel like you need a special occasion to enjoy it. Plus, I have a weird irrational fear of opening champagne bottles and possibly hitting someone in the eye (I know, I know… highly unlikely), so I extra-appreciate this feature.

Cherry Cucumber Prosecco Spritz Recipe

While Riondo Prosecco is delicious on its own, I decided to make it even more refreshing than it already is with this Cherry Cucumber Prosecco Spritz. Cherries are one of my favorite fruits, and I absolutely love adding cucumber to drinks so I decided to combine these two things in this easy and crisp cocktail.

To make this Cherry Cucumber Prosecco Spritz, chopped cucumber is muddled with Aperol and cherry juice to release the refreshing flavor and juices. It’s then shaken up with ice and poured into a  wine glass, then topped with Riondo Prosecco to add that sparkling goodness.

I love this drink on a hot day as it always cools me down instantly. I hope you end up trying it out because it’s absolutely delicious!
