Sometimes it’s the unlikeliest of couples that work well together; this, mis queridos amigos, my dear friends, is the case with this cocktail. Prosecco and stout may not be immediately thought of as the best of bedfellows, but one sip of this Prosecco and Stout Cocktail will change your mind!
The trick, of course, is to use excellent quality ingredients. Here we are using the perfect stout and prosecco to balance the flavors. Now, I’m not a HUGE stout fan, but I became immediately enamored with Broken Bow’s Broken Heart Stout, and, as I’ve said, it blends so beautifully. For prosecco I’m using Bocelli, which is lovely on it’s own or blended with stout–or even juices!
So here’s what you need to make two Prosecco and Stout Cocktails:
Prepare three orange half-moon slices, and about 1/8 teaspoon of orange zest (this can be varied!) You’ll use one orange to rim the glasses before dipping in turbinado sugar. Divide the 12 ounces of very-chilled stout in the two glasses. Top with about 3 ounces of equally cold prosecco in each, and the orange zest. Add an orange slice and serve!
As always, ¡Buen provecho! Enjoy!
