Champagne: Prosecco and Creme De Violette with lemon juice
Instead of starting the night off with champagne, why not give it a twist? This glass of prosecco has a splash of Creme de Violette and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
Tip: Prosecco is a less expensive alternative to champagne, the only difference is the fermentation process that leaves it with less pressure in the bottle and it's a bit more fruity.
