A little over 7 years ago, I married my wonderful husband. But no one knew it. We had a big wedding planned, invites were already out, flowers paid for, and all deposits non-refundable. We were thrilled to celebrate that special day with our friends and family, but we also wanted something that only the two of us shared. So a few months before our big day, we dressed to the nines and got secretly hitched at the courthouse in Manhattan. We then went to our favorite NYC restaurant and ordered a bottle of bubbly. That bottle was Nino Franco Rustico. The cork still sits in a special box along with our marriage certificate. So when I received a promotional box from my friends at Nino Franco recently with fun instructions to create a prosecco tower, I couldn’t help but light up. The package magically arrived on the eve of our secret wedding anniversary. So with tremendous love in my heart, I happily present to you this how-to for a Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco tower.
I must admit, I was quite intimidated at the prospect of building my own prosecco tower. It seems awfully difficult and dangerously precarious. However, once I started to assemble the bubbly pyramid it was surprisingly easy. And now that I’ve conquered my fears, I’m thrilled to have this little hosting trick up my sleeve. Here are my tips for assembly:
Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco Tower
- On a sturdy table, place 1 coup glass in the center and encircle tightly with approximately 6 coup glasses.
- Add the second layer by carefully placing 3 coup glasses on top. Make sure the base of the glasses are centered on three rims of the layer below. The coups should have absolutely no movement.
- Place the final coup glass on top of the tower, following the instructions outlined in Step 2.
- Gently pour the Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco into the top coup glass and allow the bubbly to overflow and cascade down into the rest of the glasses. Sip and enjoy!
And voila! A prosecco tower to end all party tricks! You’ll want to make sure to pair your tower with a bottle or two of Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco Superiore DOCG. Founded in 1919, Nino Franco is quite appropriately paired with the unofficial glass of the Roaring Twenties, the coup! A sexy, elegant, and celebratory prosecco to match an equally rich glass. And with Rustico’s crisp fruit and creamy taste, it won’t disappoint.
