Nino Franco Summer Kir: A Refreshing Cocktail to try with Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco + Root 23

Hello Friends,

Nino Franco is one of the quality pioneers of Italian Prosecco. The winery was founded in 1919 by Antonio Franco and is located in northeastern Italy in the prominent wine growing region of Valdobbiadene. Nino Franco’s Rustico label honors the historic name of the original method used to make Prosecco, which was second ferment in bottle. Pressurized vessels are used today in what is known as the Charmat method. This method lowers the cost considerably, so sparkling wine can enjoyed any time of year, not only during celebratory occasions and holidays.

Beat the heat with this delicious, pretty cocktail! 

Classic cocktails such as the Mimosa and Bellini, which uses Prosecco and other sparkling wines, are delightful, but let’s kick it up a notch with something new and exciting. How does a flute or coupe of Nino Franco Summer Kir sound? You need only three ingredients: a bottle of Nino Franco Rustico NV Prosecco, cherry almond simple syrup from Root 23—a brand founded by two busy moms in Columbus, Ohio (who use only natural ingredients)—and maraschino cherries for garnish.

Besides being affordable—you can find Nino Franco Rustico NV Prosecco for under $20—this delicious summer thirst-quencher is easy to make. It’s so easy, even Dezel (or a caveman) can do it. Just pour a ½-ounce (1 tablespoon) of simple syrup in your flute or coupe, slowly add 5 ounces of chilled Nino Franco Rustico NV Prosecco, garnish with a cherry and enjoy!

The crisp and bright tree fruit flavors and floral notes in the Rustico marry well with the backdrop of juicy cherries and mild nuttiness found in the Root 23 simple syrup. This refreshing, eye-catching summer cocktail is sure to add some fun, laughter and sparkle to your next pool party, get-together or cookout. 

Nino Franco Rustico Prosecco is delicious on its own. Add friends, a cheese platter and enjoy!

And let me be clear: while a good base for sparkling cocktails, Nino Franco Rustico NV Prosecco is also a rock-solid sparkler on its own and at your dinner table. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed this Italian sparkler with everything from a cheese and charcuterie platter to Asian dishes to seafood—with pan-fried calamari being a personal favorite. I hope you enjoy this wonderful cocktail as much as I do!
