Cocktail Rossini: Prosecco Rosé Le Clivie and strawberries

Rossini Cocktail: fresh, sweet and really easy to make. And summer’s here!

The Rossini is the cousin of the Bellini, the famous cocktail made with peach juice which is so very popular in Milan, but in a “pink” version.

Pretty, thirst-quenching and delicious, this drink cannot possibly disappoint.

Its origins date back to the mid-20th century, when it was made for the first time in Venice by the barman Cipriani, at the famous Harry’s Bar. This historic and very fashionable venue, the favourite bar of celebrities such as Ernest Hemingway and Woody Allen, can be considered one of the cradles of the art of mixology. Suffice to say that Harry’s Bar also created the Bellini, the Tintoretto and the Mimosa.

But let’s get back to the Rossini and the reason for its success.

The versatility of the Rossini cocktail

Great to drink at any time of day, it is perfect for brunch, as an aperitif, for a festive snack, but also as a drink to accompany fish and shellfish dishes and, of course, for after dinner.

One of the most popular sparkling cocktails of the moment, it succeeds in conquering both male and female palates thanks to its sweetness and slight acidity delivered by the strawberries.

How is it made?

The Rossini Cocktail is very quick and easy to make and requires no particular precision.

Start with fresh, ripe strawberries, roughly 4 or 5 per portion.

Blend the fruit or crush it by hand, pressing it through a strainer with a spoon.

Add a squeeze of lime.

Add Le Clivie Prosecco Treviso Extra Dry and ice, then garnish with a basil leaf, strawberries and redcurrants.
