Seven festive ideas for your Tesco Finest fizz

Elevate the light, fruity flavours of sparkling wine to make delicious festive cocktails or chilled desserts. From sorbet to sangria, take a look at these tips and perfect your festive fizz this Christmas.

  1. Add berries

    This elegant prosecco offers a fruity twist on fizz. Make it sweeter by adding a handful of fresh or frozen berries to each glass and watch as your tipple turns a festive red.

  2. Mix with stout

    The smooth taste of stout combines perfectly with sparkling wine, making a unique and luxuriously dark drink. This black velvet cocktail recipe, with Premier Cru non-vintage Champagne and Guinness, is fuss-free to prepare and makes a stylish party drink. 

  3. Try a festive sangria

    Sangria shouldn’t just be for summer! Mix a delicious prosecco with a fruit brandy, sugar, ice and a handful of sliced fresh fruit in a jug for a refreshing drink with winter flavour. We recommend this juicy prosecco sangria recipe with apricot, pomegranate, pear and red grapes. 

  4. Add liqueur

    Just adding a dash of liqueur can transform your bubbly into a sophisticated cocktail. Make a luxurious syrup with crème de cassis (rich blackcurrant liqueur), fresh cranberries and sugar – pour some into your flutes and top up with fizz, to make this vibrant Kir Royale.

  5. Make an alcoholic sorbet

    Sparkling wine has a tangy sweetness that perfectly complements zesty citrus flavours in frozen desserts. Why not make a boozy festive sorbet to serve at a dinner party or on Christmas Day? This prosecco and tangerine sorbet with red berries is packed with zingy flavours and can be prepared in just five minutes.

  6. Add jam or marmalade

    The sticky sugar in jam and marmalade balances the bubbles of sparkling wine to make a smooth, well-rounded cocktail. The marmalade and clementines in this orange marmalade fizz recipe give the drink a wonderful jelly-like softness. Make your cocktail unique and use a bottle of Italian Pignoletto for light notes of peach and pear.

  7. In jelly

    Prosecco and Cava add a delicate sparkle to fruit jelly. Try a batch of sparkling jellies for a boozy festive dessert or serve in shots as a sweet drinks party canapé. These passion fruit prosecco jellies with creamy panna cotta are the perfect pudding for wowing your guests.
