It’s holiday time which means parties, lots of food, cocktails, and punch! Serving individual cocktails is great if you are willing to stock a full bar but sometimes you need to stretch your entertaining budget.
The best way to do that, and not skimp on quality, is to serve a refreshing punch.
In the cooler months, I see lots of recipes for coffee and ice cream punch, and even crockpot punch, but I prefer a light, refreshing, and sparkling punch.
The best way to make one is with Prosecco!

The most famous of Prosecco cocktails is the Bellini, which is prosecco and fruit puree, but you can make many different cocktails with Prosecco.
You can use Prosecco just as you would wine, sparkling water, lemon-lime soda, or champagne. Prosecco mimosas are super fun for a brunch!
My favorite Prosecco cocktail is a punch. I love how the bubbles in the Prosecco enhance the flavors in the cocktail.
Another great way to mix it up with Prosecco is to add fresh herb. Thyme, Rosemary, Mint, and even Cilantro raise the other flavors to another level.
For this Raspberry Thyme Prosecco Punch, I added thyme as a great counterpart to the tart raspberries. The herbal notes of the thyme make it more Winter-y and not as sweet as a summer punch.
To make the Raspberry Thyme Prosecco Punch, I start with a homemade raspberry puree. Fresh or frozen raspberries, cooked with a little sugar and water, are steeped with fresh thyme sprigs.
Letting the fresh thyme steep in the warm syrup allows it to release its oils and mix with the raspberries.
This raspberry puree can be made ahead of time stored in the fridge until ready to serve. To make this recipe even easier, I use prepared lemonade.
Feel free to make your own lemonade at home, or use a frozen concentrate. I have a great recipe for homemade lemonade made with honey.
Keep the raspberry puree, lemonade, and prosecco chilled until ready to serve and then just mix them all together in a pitcher.
I like to serve the Raspberry Thyme Prosecco Punch in these highball glasses that I got from Joy Jolt. Their high-quality glassware is not only beautiful but is also shatter-proof which is great considering I am super clumsy.
WHAT GOES GREAT WITH PROSECCO?
Any fruit puree goes great with prosecco, just pick your favorite!
WHAT IS THE BEST PROSECCO TO USE?
I think most of them are pretty great. Because I am using lemonade and a fruit puree, I use an inexpensive one like Barefoot. If you like it, it will be great!
CAN I MAKE THIS AHEAD OF TIME?
The puree can be made ahead of time. You can add the puree to the lemonade ahead of time as well.
Just keep the prosecco chilled and add it just before serving so you keep the bubbles.
CAN THIS BE MAKE INTO A MOCKTAIL?
If you would like to make it non-alcoholic, feel free to use sparkling white grape juice or sparkling water.
