5 Hacks For Leftover Prosecco

The last couple of years has seen the nation go prosecco crazy. It’s bubbly, fun and associated with luxury and celebration. It’s fancy enough to drink at any special occasion, perfect for a girls night in or even for a sneaky Friday post-work tipple. Sales are soaring and in the last year, we’ve seen shortages in the UK with stampedes in the supermarkets when there’s been even a sniff of a prosecco super deal. Prosecco isn’t just great for drinking though, it has some pretty handy uses too! Here are our top 5 savvy hacks to use up any leftover prosecco... (who are we kidding, who EVER has leftover prosecco!?)

What to do with leftover prosecco

1 - Prosecco Ice-cubes - get these out to impress your friends when you next get together for cocktails. Try a simple Prosecco Mojito, muddle together mint leaves, a slice of lime and a sprinkling of sugar in the bottom of the glass. Then fill the glass with your prosecco cubes and add a generous amount of rum and soda, an easy Mojito in minutes.

2 -  Prosecco Pancakes - why not fizz up your pancakes by pouring some prosecco Syrup over the top of your perfect pancake stack? To make this scrumptious syrup, add 150g of sugar to 150ml of prosecco in a small pan and bring to a simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Once you are happy with the consistency, pour it over the top. Absolute pancake perfection if we do say so ourselves!

3 - Boozy Prosecco Berry Compote - pour this over your favourite lemon dessert or luxurious on its own mixed with greek yogurt. Heat 50ml of water with 75g of golden sugar, once the sugar is dissolved add in 100g of strawberries, 100g of raspberries and 100g of blueberries. Once the fruit has cooked down - add in a swig of your favourite Prosecco. If you have any Cassis in the back of the drinks cupboard then you can add a dash of this too to really boost that gorgeous berry taste.

4 - Prosecco Poached Pears - Brush prosecco and the juice of one small lemon over the top of peeled pears. Heat to a simmer in a pan and add some sugar. Cover the pan and poach for 25 minutes - serving the poached pears with vanilla ice-cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon when ready.

5 - Seafood Prosecco Sauce - What, how and why we hear you cry! Trust us on this one... melt a little butter in a small saucepan with shallots and garlic for about 3 minutes on a low heat. Season with salt and pepper and then stir in a small glass of prosecco and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer and whisk until you reach your preferred thickness. Pour over scallops, prawns or sea bass - unbeatable!
