Prosecco Punch is one of my favorite go-to brunch cocktail recipes, this Pineapple Prosecco Party Punch is a fun option for a summer brunch cocktail!
I first shared this Pineapple Prosecco Punch on my friend’s blog, Amanda’s Cookin’.
While I love a good mimosa or bellini, sometimes you want to just serve something a bit special and different for brunch.
This prosecco punch is perfect for brunchtime cocktails – or even a poolside drink in the summer. It’s bubbly and bright, with a sneaky hit of white rum that works deliciously with the tropical flavors of the pineapple, mango and mint.
Now, of course you can use champagne in this recipe but I’ve taken a liking to using prosecco while entertaining. Not only is it more budget-friendly, but it’s got a less sharp flavor profile that works better with food.
If you’re not in on the trend yet, prosecco is basically a modern Italian sparkling wine that is made in a much more affordable way than champagne, which is very tightly regulated. While I love a great, dry champagne, the price tag for a good champagne compared to the price for a good bottle of prosecco is staggering. (Especially if you are subject to Canadian alcohol pricing like I am!)
Especially if you are going to make a cocktail with it – and not enjoy it straight – I really don’t see the point in using an expensive bottle of champagne for mimosas or brunch cocktails. (And using cheap champagne is just a headache waiting to happen.)
While making this pineapple prosecco punch, I prefer to only add half of the bottle of prosecco to the punch when making it and then top each glass with additional prosecco when serving. This way, guests who want a weaker drink can have the punch as prepared and those wanting something stronger can – and also get to enjoy some fresh bubbles while they are at it!
(You can also leave out the white rum if that’s too strong of a drink for your guests.)
Ingredients for Prosecco Party Punch
- 1 bottle Prosecco
- Small handful mint
- 2 cups pineapple chunks with juice
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- 1/2 cup mango juice
- 1/2 cup white rum, optional
Tip: This cocktail is best enjoyed soon after preparation. If you must prepare in advance, leave out the ice and prosecco until just about to serve. The mint should not be left for more than a few hours.
