How to Make Cherry Prosecco Smash

If you know me, you know that my drink of choice is Prosecco so of course, I had to make a cocktail including my favorite sparkling beverage.

This cocktail is especially easy to make!

Here’s what you need:

  • fresh cherries, pitted
  • vodka
  • lemon juice
  • agave or maple syrup
  • prosecco
  • fresh thyme for garnish

That’s it! Smash, mix and enjoy!

How to Quickly Pit Cherries

Have you ever tried to cut a pit out of a cherry using a knife? If you answered no, let me paint you a picture: it’s messy, hard to do and I nearly cut a finger off trying to cut out the pit.

What you want to do is take a straw (I like to use a metal straw but a plastic one will work) and insert it into the bottom of the cherry and through the opposite end. This will pop the pit out and leave you with a perfectly pitted cherry.

Another easy cocktail to add to your drink recipe collection!

Some of my favorites are Grapefruit Rosemary Lemonade Sparklers and Lightened Up Grapefruit Margarita.
