Prosecco Mojitos And Premier Estates Wine Review


Every now and then we are starting to get a glimpse of summer and who doesn't like a glass of Prosecco whilst the BBQ is on? Premier Estates Wine recently sent me a few bottles to see what I thought. As we have just moved house and the weather is not quite good enough for a BBQ just yet, we celebrated our move with a bottle of the Grand Rose

We both really enjoyed it. The Grand Rose is made using a combination of red and white grapes from the Veneto region of North Eastern Italy. Currently at under £50 for a box of 6 delivered I think this is a good deal.

Prosecco is a drink that reminds me of my Mother in law. She was always keen on a Prosecco cocktail when we had a summer BBQ or before a roast dinner. I have fond memories of her complaining that my father in law wasn't adding enough Chambord. I therefore had a Google to see what other kinds of cocktails you can make with Prosecco.

My eyes lit up when I saw the words Prosecco Mojito. Why had I never thought of this before? I mean why use soda water when you can use Prosecco? I had a little play around to get the perfect mixture and I have to say I am pretty pleased with the result!

Prosecco Mojitos

  • 3 limes (2 1/2 squeezed and the other half for decoration.)
  • 2 handfuls of ice
  • 4 dessert spoons of caster sugar
  • 50ml of Bacardi
  • 1 mini bottle of Prosecco. I used Premier Estates.
  • Fresh mint.
  1. Place the squeezed limes, ice, Bacardi and caster sugar into into a food processor and pulse it to crush the ice.
  2. Wet the tops of the cocktail glasses and roll them in caster sugar. 
  3. Divide the rum mixture between two glasses.
  4. Take a sprig of mint and take off the leaves. Rip the leaves and place them in one of the glasses. Do the same for the other glass.
  5. Top up with Prosecco.
  6. Enjoy!

After this recipe, I am unsure I will want to make a standard mojito again! Have you got any other good Prosecco cocktail recipes that I should try?

This prosecco mojito cocktail is the perfect summer drink
