Prosecco Cocktails with Red Vermouth and Blackberries

The famous Prosecco cocktail appears here as a blackberry variation, fortified by a touch of Italian red vermouth.

  • Yield: Makes 6

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pint (1 cup) blackberries
  • 6 ounces (3/4 cup) sweet red vermouth, preferably Cinzano Rosso
  • 2 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • 1 bottle (750 milliliters) Prosecco, chilled

Directions

  1. Gently stir together blackberries, vermouth, and sugar in a bowl. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until blackberries release juices and sugar dissolves, about 1 hour.
