Anyone who knows us knows that it doesn’t take much persuasion to pop a bottle of bubbles! Any excuse for a celebration really. But sometimes even we get a bit bored of fizz all evening (a rare occurrence mind you) so every now and then we like to jazz things up. You can pimp your prosecco so many different ways. Whether it’s with fruit, cordial or a flavoured liqueur, there’s plenty options to add a bit of pizazz to your fizz.
With that in mind, here’s our round up of the best options out there to make sure to keep your glass and your night sparkling.
Cordials & Liqueurs
We had Old Luxters Blood Orange liqueur over Christmas at a friends house and it was truly delicious! Best served chilled and is also divine over deserts. You can buy this online Chiltern Valley Winery & Brewery or visit their shop and winery in the Hambleden Valley, near Henley on Thames.
Old Luxters Blood Orange Liqueur 50ml £23.95 (also available in 20cl)
You’ll be in heaven with one smell of this this light, sweet tasting lychee liqueur. It’s a total must have for your drinks cabinet. Perfect to pimp your prosecco or as a base for lychee martinis. Frankly we could just drink it on it’s own over ice all night!
If you like blackcurrant then Creme de Cassis is a great option and perfect if you are shelling out on Champagne for the occasion. Know the lingo – if you are having it with sparkling wine it’s a Kir Pétillant, if you mix it just with wine it’s a simple Kir and with Champagne it’s a Kir Royale. To be honest, we’ll have it any which way!
If you like a bit of spice you’ll love this! This fragrant syrup combines the flavours of fruity clementines and fresh root ginger with a cheeky dash of chilli to create a delicious addition to sparking prosecco. You can also drizzle it over ice cream to pop a bit of pizzaz into your pudding.
There are any number of gorgeous alcohol free cordials to jazz up your prosecco in your local supermarket. But we love Belvoir because of their breath of range from Elderflower & rose, Lime & Lemongrass to Blueberry & Blackcurrant. Perfect for a refreshing Spring or Summer glass of fizz.

Mint, basil, rosemary & lavender add a fragrant twist to your cocktails and can pimp your prosecco beautifully.
Even just adding as simple piece of fruit can make a glass of prosecco feel extra special. Strawberries and raspberries work best or some peach if you are making a belini. Freeze your fresh fruit (making sure they don’t touch each other in the freezer) and then they help keep your drink chilled as well as looking super pretty.
