Lo Scintillante

T'is the season, and one of my personal drinkable favorites for the holidays, is this simple cocktail that combines two Italian alcohols—Cocchi and Prosecco—for a bubbly cocktail that’s slightly sweet and laced with hints of clove and spice. A great choice for a holiday apéritif (and in some circles it's slowing becoming a huge happy hour staple).

What to buy: Cocchi Apertivo Americano is a wine-based apéritif. It can be found at high-end liquor stores and online.


1 white sugar cube
2 ounces chilled Cocchi Apertivo Americano
2 ounces chilled Prosecco
Orange twist for garnish


Place sugar cube in a champagne flute, add Cocchi Apertivo Americano, and stir briefly. Top with Prosecco and garnish with orange twist.

Drink up and ENJOY.
