Hailing from the hills of Veneto, Italy, prosecco wines are unpretentious, cheery, sparkling and ideal for New Year’s eve toasting. With all the frolicking ambiance of Champagne, they’re just made for festive occasions. And they’re lighter and more affordable. While they’re lovely to sip as is, they’re ideally suited for holiday punches and cocktails. Serve any of these sparkling drinks below as your signature New Year’s cocktail or punch. All add elegance and panache to the occasion—and spread good cheer! Much like parties, each has its own character and style. So whether you’re hosting a casual brunch or a formal New Year’s Eve dinner party (or anything in between), we’ve got a fabulous New Year’s sparkler for you.
