How to turn your Prosecco Hamper into a Cocktail

It’s the drink that can perfectly accompany any occasion or time of day. From Bellini’s in the morning to cocktails in the evening, Prosecco will always be a good choice! Why not try pairing a cool glass with some classic Italian Aperitivo snacks such as olives, crostini or nuts for a perfect weekend treat.
