Prosecco Tower How-To with Nino Franco

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. …

Ferrari Trento: Official Bubbly of the Emmy Awards

Every year I get dolled up for the Emmy’s. I have a full hair and make-up team arrive at dawn. Mani and pedi while hair removal commences. Multiple gown fittings, proceeded by stitching me into a skintight dress. Designer shoes. Bling up the wazoo. Minimum of an hour practicing poses in the mirror. Then I take the important walk down the red carpet… I mean, my hallway to my living room, park myself on the couch, and don’t move for the next 6 hours as I watch the Emmy Awards on TV. This is usually a solitary viewing, as my …

Mionetto Prosecco Slushie

Most people associate prosecco with milestone celebrations like a wedding or a fancy birthday dinner. But I personally like to drink the libation during more casual settings. There’s something so relaxing about popping open a bottle of the bubbly after a long day of work and sitting on a breezy patio as I sip. In particular, one of my go-to brands is Mionetto Prosecco. It’s has a lovely light fruity flavor, whereas many of the more economical proseccos tend to be more harsh and acidic to the palette. I almost always have a chilled bottle in the fridge. Since I am very familiar …

The Voveti Spring Cocktail-13022

The Voveti Spring Cocktail

Now that Spring is here, it’s time to add some serious fruit to your cocktails. I’m talking fruity infusions, fruit-themed drinks, and garnishes galore. It truly is the perfect time to celebrate the season and all things blooming. So, I was egging to get mixing when VOVETI Prosecco tasked me with the “difficult” job of creating a Spring themed recipe using their alcohol. Naturally my mind started running at 100 MPH with flavor combinations – prosecco and hibiscus, prosecco and lavender, or prosecco and jasmine. But ultimately I settled on ingredients that were a little easier to come by this season… …
