A delicious low-alcohol spritz is great on a hot night when you want some elegance in a glass. The citrus and ginger have some cleansing and feel-good qualities that pair perfectly with bubbles for a light way to keep a summer party going!

Swap option: Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice or adding a hint of lime is a great twist to this lemonade.


  • Syrup

    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh mint, loosely packed
    • 1/3 cup freshly grated ginger
    • 1/4 cup local honey
    • 1/4 cup water
  • Cocktail

    • 1 bottle prosecco, chilled
    • 2 lemons, juiced


Bring mint, ginger, honey and water to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat, whisking to combine. Remove from heat and steep 1 hour before straining through a fine-mesh sieve and leave to cool completely.

Once cooled, mix with your favorite prosecco and lemon juice until you reach the perfect sweetness for you.
