Prosecco is perfect with appetizers, dinner and dessert. We said “and,” not “or,” because we believe in keeping the bubbly flowing—especially at Thanksgiving.
When you go with Coda for your prosecco of choice, you can enjoy a couple of drinks (safely and responsibly, of course), without paying the price the next day. No added sugar means no surprise hangover, so go ahead and get creative with Coda in these fall craft cocktails:
1. Cranberry Pomegranate Prosecco
Move over, cranberry sauce (especially the canned stuff). Prosecco is a crisp and classy companion to fresh cranberries. This cocktail from vegetarian lifestyle blog Trial and Eater also adds pomegranate and lime for a sparkling beverage that we count as a full serving of fruit.
2. Bourbon Apple Cider Fizz
Bourbon soothes the soul while prosecco enlivens the palate in a well-balanced concoction from the So Much Food blog. You’ll make your own apple cider cinnamon syrup (don’t worry, it’s easy) and then add some additional apple cider to the cocktail along with a splash of lemon juice to counter the sweetness.
3. Ginger Mint Prosecco Punch
This one’s for the table, courtesy of Cake ‘n Knife. Think of it as prosecco’s play on a mojito. In addition to lime and mint, you’ll muddle fresh ginger. But isn’t that just prosecco with some crushed stuff at the bottom? The punch is that you get to add a few shots of vodka. Whoa. Hey. You add the shots to the pitcher, not to your own drink. Take it easy. The turkey hasn’t even been served yet.
4. Coda Julep
Just like the Kentucky Derby starts off the Triple Crown, Thanksgiving means off to the races for the holidays. Fuel up for Black Friday with the Coda Julep, a twist on the classic mint julep with prosecco in place of bourbon. A little bit of cognac and a dash of aromatic bitters both go a long way in making this julep variation extra delicious. Want to make it Thanksgiving-y? Top it off with cranberries.
5. Coda 75
Pear is one of the most underrated fall flavors, completely overshadowed by pumpkin and apple. The Coda 75 gives pear the spotlight, “pearing” prosecco with pear brandy, cinnamon and lemon juice for a pretty drink that gets a festive pear fan garnish. It’s meant to be more of a mini cocktail, best served in a small coupe glass so people don’t think you’re skimping.
