This pretty in pink rosé spritz is the perfect refreshing, light taste of summer. Packed with pink gin and Chambord then topped with rosé prosecco and pink lemonade, it makes a fab party cocktail that’s easy to scale up.
A spritz is a classic drink option for summer (though I love it all year round!) This one, packed full of colour, is a favourite for parties and entertaining.
Not only does it look gorgeous, it tastes fresh and summery, with the perfect level of sweetness without being overboard. This is also a super flexible cocktail – make it stronger by skipping the pink lemonade and using just rosé prosecco, or go the other way and use just pink lemonade. You can play around with it based on your taste and what you like.
We are really going all out on the pink front here!
- Pink gin. Not only does this add a lovely subtle pink colour, but it also tends to be infused with either rhubarb or berries, working perfectly with the rest of the ingredients.
- Chambord. This raspberry liqueur adds a lovely berry flavour, and deep colour. If you can’t find it, you could use grenadine or passoa (passionfruit liqueur).
- Rosé prosecco. Any will do – it doesn’t need to be anything fancy. Use rosé cava as a substitute, or rosé champagne.
- Pink lemonade. I always use zero-sugar lemonade, but you can use regular if you like. If you can’t find pink lemonade, just use regular lemonade or soda water.
Add whatever garnishes you like – I love a squeeze of fresh lime juice and a couple of lime slices to freshen it up, but seasonal berries would be lovely too, as would fresh mint or basil leaves.
How to make them
It really is as simple as:
- Adding ice to your desired cocktail glasses.
- Adding the gin and Chambord, then stirring.
- Topping with the rosé prosecco and the pink lemonade, garnishing and serving right away, while cold and refreshing.
Got a question?
You can if you like, but don’t add the ice as it will melt and then water down the cocktails. You may want to top it with extra pink lemonade or prosecco when you’re ready to serve, just to freshen up the fizz factor.
With three types of alcohol, this isn’t a weak cocktail. However, you can very much vary how much prosecco you add which will weaken it if you’re worried. Just use more pink lemonade!
Yes, you could, or tequila. Any clear spirit will do here (ideally go for a pink vodka if you can).
