The New Year is drawing to a close and (thankfully) we will soon be leaving 2016 far behind us. To welcome 2017 it’s only right that we should greet the New Year with a glass of something special in our hands and so I present to you the Prosecco Kir Royale made with Tesco’s Finest Prosecco, possibly the easiest sparkling cocktail there is.
The Kir Royale is a classic French cocktail, normally made with cassis, but in my version I’m using Chambord for a slightly more fruity taste. The lovely people at Tesco have sent me a beautiful bottle of their Tesco’s Finest Prosecco, which adds a wonderful, sparkling finish to the cocktail.
This particular Prosecco stands out because it is sourced from the hills of Valdobbiadene, which is in the heart of the Prosecco wine growing area near the Dolomites in Northern Italy. The area produces Prosecco mainly from a cool-climate grape called Glera and has a protected designation of origin status, which you would find with some of the world’s finest and most exclusive produce. Tesco’s Finest Prosecco is very refreshing and zesty with a wonderful pear flavour, which matches well with the Chambord in this cocktail.

I hope you all enjoyed this cocktail recipe and I’d like to thank all my readers for their support during 2016. 2017 is going to be an even bigger and better year of foodie fun for G&J, so keep your eyes peeled!
Cheers and Happy New Year!
