Cheers Valentine!

Now you know we’re all about a festive bev, especially one that involves champagne or prosecco. A drink involving bubbles? We’re in!!

So we had to share this fun and festive drink that would be perfect for a Galentine’s celebration or a cute Vday date night. Bonus-it is suuuper easy to make!

The basis for this drink is the ice cubes. Buuut they’re not just your average cube my friend, they are CHAMPAGNE ice cubes!


Strawberries, sliced or diced

Champagne or sparkling wine

Ice Cube Molds or Tray (we went the festive route with these from Amazon)


Fill the ice cube trays with the sliced/diced strawberries

Pour the champagne or sparkling wine over the fruit into the trays

Freeze for about 4-6 hours or until solid enough for the cubes to pop out of the tray (the champagne will not freeze 100% but will be solid enough to remove and use!)

Add to a glass of champagne or white wine and enjoy! The strawberry champagne cubes added such a nice refreshing flavor to our champs that we will definitely be making these all the time!

One of the best parts about our mini Disney vacay was experiencing a deliciously fresh and new drink!!  Kat and I decided to hang at Il Mulino’s bar and boy was it a greatttt idea!

I decided to order one of their speciality drinks to go ahead and try something fun and new. Let me tell ya, it was well worth it!  I ordered what they called an Aperol Spritz.  It sounded super light and refreshing, and the main ingredient was Prosecco so how could I resist?!


Since Kat and I loveddd it so much, we decided it would be festive to recreate the drink for Fall (especially because they’re orange in color hehe)  They literally take 1 minute to make and were just as delicious as we remembered so we def recommend them!


1 1/2 ounces Aperol


3 ounces {or more depending on taste} Prosecco or sparkling wine, chilled


Sparkling mineral water or club soda, chilled


1 lemon or orange slice or twist


Fill the glasses with the Proseco {we used larger glasses so we filled them about halfway}, then add the Aperol and a splash of club soda. Garnish with the orange and you’re good to go!


This makes a fairly large drink, but because it is so light and not sweet, it’s easy to drink haha.

As for the Prosecco, you can use any brand, but the bar specifically used Cupcake.  The Aperol is the most expensive ingredient, but you only use a little anyway so you definitely can get several drinks out of the bottle!


If you’re looking for a fun, fresh, and easy Fall drink recipe- this is it!  Reminder it’s not super sweet but the Prosecco gives it just the perfect amount sugar!
