Looking for a celebratory cocktail that's easy to make? You've found it! This coral-hued drink has a make-ahead base of a homemade citrus simple syrup, raspberry purée and traditional Italian bitter liqueur. Top each serving off with some prosecco and you're ready to go!

Ingredients

Citrus Simple Syrup:

Spritz:

Directions

  1. Make the simple syrup: Use a vegetable peeler to remove the peels from the oranges and lime. (Be careful not to remove the bitter white pith from the fruit). Combine the citrus peels, sugar and 1 cup water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until the sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes. Cover and let cool completely, about 30 minutes, then strain out the citrus peels.
  2. For the spritz: Place the raspberries in a blender. Add 1/2 cup to 1 cup water and process until smooth. Strain the liquid through a fine-mesh strainer to remove the seeds.
  3. Stir together the simple syrup, raspberry purée and Italian liqueur. Pour into glasses filled with crushed ice and top off with the prosecco.
