blueberry & basil prosecco

Whats not to love when you can combine an herb that is anti-bacterial and a great source of Vitamin A, a fruit that is full of antioxidants, Vitamin C and fiber and some prosecco to top it all off? I’m really not sure. I love when cocktails can be construed as health drinks. Next up? Kombucha cocktail. Oh yes.

Blueberry and basil may be an odd-sounding combo to some, but I’m a fan and I’ve also been thinking about this drink since I spotted it on a menu board in Denver. I figured a trip to Arizona would be the perfect opportunity to try it out – complete with a pool, sun, flowy dresses and flip flops.

Try it out, or mix it up with different herb/fruit combinations, mint & melon anyone?

Blueberry & Basil Prosecco - 1 serving

  • 1 Tbsp blueberries (organic if possible)
  • 1 Tbsp basil, minced
  • 6 oz chilled prosecco

Combine basil and blueberries. Muddle together. (We didn’t have a muddler) Pour in prosecco and savor each sip. My favorite part? Eating the blueberries and basil!

    You and your friends are gorgeous.

    I’ve seen basil in martinis and margaritas but just can’t get into it. Now Kombucha cocktails I have tried. (Kombucha and prosecco are really good together. )

    Hi I had seen this recipe in some magazine, forgot which one so when I googled it you came up! I just got back from the grocery store with the blueberries and basil and can’t wait to “savor every sip”. Nice to meet a fellow blogger this way.
    Happy Saturday evening.
