I know what you're thinking: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. We certainly agree that there's little that can exceed possibly our beloved prosecco (except champagne perhaps...). That said, we could all do with a little variation in our sparkling wine repertoire. And what better variation than a pretty prosecco cocktail?
Now, there's nothing humble or low key about a prosecco cocktail. If you're whipping up one of these delicious concoctions, consider it a celebration in itself. Chose the right one and you could be whipping up something gloriously extra to mark the best of occasions (don't worry, we consider most Friday nights a 'special occasion' to).
But, where do you start? We anticipated your angst and did the Pinterest scouring for you. Here you'll find a selection of some of the nicest, most beautiful (ahem, Instagram worthy) and enticing prosecco cocktail recipes that we could find. We've tried to limit the ingredient list to things that are relatively easy to buy, so chill your best glasses and prepare to pop some bottles.
Scroll through our favourite prosecco cocktails below:
Raspberry Sorbet Prosecco
Consider this summer in a glass: grown up throwback to the ice cream floats of the glory days. Jennifer Mayering's recipe only calls for raspberry sorbet, prosecco and a few fresh raspberries to garnish. Less really is more...
Lemonade Prosecco Punch
This concoction by Crazy For Crust will go down a storm and any and all social gatherings. Your only problem may be that this vodka, lemonade and prosecco drink might go down a little too well...
Sparkling Limoncello Cocktail
We're very much into this 'three ingredient recipe' thing, and Inside The Rustic Kitchen has a great one to add to your collection. Swap the after dinner limoncello shot for something a little lighter, and much more refreshing.
Ginger Grapefruit Sparkler
Garnish With Lemon have the grown up answer to your prosecco cocktail needs. Ginger and grapefruit might be one of the more curious combinations on the list, but we're into the adventure of it.
Plum and Thyme Prosecco Smash
Pop this in your 'To Instagram Later' notebook. These beautifully elegant plum and thyme prosecco drinks by My Diary Of Us offer a fragrant surprise with each sip. Whip this one out if you really want to wow your guests.
Pineapple Mint Prosecco Punch
Could a drink look any more summery than this one by Bread Booze Bacon? It's light, refreshing and will likely become on of your go-to beverages throughout the summer months.
Sparkling Blueberry and Elderflower Sour
The Flavour Bender has devised a cross between a whisky sour and a mimosa. If you're a fan of drinks that fall a little on the bitter side, this one's for you.
Okay so this may not be a ground-breaking inclusion on our prosecco cocktail list, but where would a prosecco cocktail list be without summer's favourite aperitif?
Blueberry Mojito Royale
Bored of your standard mojito? Give it a little sparkle with the addition of our old friend prosecco and a generous helping of fresh blueberries, just like the Domesticate Me blog suggests.

I'm sure no one needs reminding that we have the French to thank for Champagne. Nevertheless, here's a quick PSA: unless the grapes are grown and the drink is bottled in the Champagne region of France, those bottles are definitely not the real deal.
English sparkling wine has been on the up for quite a while now, much of it being produced in the Sussex, Cornwall and Devonshire regions. While their isn't a specific term for that which is produced over her just yet, brands like Nyetimber have been pioneering the British sparking wine movement and might be worth noting.
Ah, the beautiful boot shaped island from which our beloved Prosecco hails. If we're really reaching peak-prosecco, if you're interested in venturing beyond this particular brand of budget bubbles then you might want to get to know Trentodoc.
It originates from the Italian Alps, is fermented twice, has to be aged for a minimum of 15 months and has a minimum alcohol percentage of about 11.5.
Let's not overlook Cava. To earn the title the sparkling wine must be made in a special method called 'champenoise'. 95 percent of cava is made in the Penedès area in Catalonia if you're pondering your next Spanish get away.
If you were to venture over to South Africa and asked for a glass of bubbles, you might be offered a glass of Cap Classique - the regional version of Champagne (but not Champagne because no one else is allowed to use that name...).
