This delicious Raspberry Prosecco Cocktail, bursting with the flavors of fresh raspberries and lime, is perfect for your next brunch!
We miss entertaining, don’t you?
Especially time with our girl friends.
There’s something special about sitting down with a group of women and sharing a meal and a cocktail (or 2!).
The conversations and support.
Since we can’t get together the normal way lately, we’ve started scheduling Facetime gatherings with our friends.
And it might not be the same, but it’s still so fun!
Recently, we’ve connected with some of our blogging friends to create a virtual “dinner” club.
We’re planning to get together once a month, and rotate the host, and have a fun theme.
We’ll decorate our tables, and share our recipes to create a full menu for the meal.
Then we’re gonna cook all the recipes and share a virtual meal!
Of course, we’re gonna share all that inspiration with you, because that’s what friends do, right?!
This month, our theme is a Galentine’s Brunch, and we’re bringing the signature cocktail!
If you’re here from our friend Michele’s blog, or are new to Simply2Moms, Welcome!
We’re so happy you’re here!
We’re AnnMarie (darker hair), and Anne (light hair).
We’re friends who live right across the street from each other. We love to share simple (and budget-friendly!) ideas for home decor and DIY’s, healthy meal inspiration and recipes, and tips for raising teens and beyond.

Doesn’t everything look delicious?!

Starting with this one…
How to Make a Raspberry Prosecco Cocktail
Not only is this recipe delicious, it’s sorta kinda healthy thanks to a bunch of raspberries!
It’s not really healthy.
But it is delicious!
This is what you’ll need to make it:
- Raspberry liqueur (like Chambord or Chateau Monet)
- Fresh lime juice
- Simple syrup (optional)
We love Prosecco because it’s got the lowest carb count of any kind of wine.
And it’s got bubbles.
In our experience, Prosecco blends better with other flavors than other sparkling wines.
But if you have champagne or cava on hand, go ahead and use them!
If you prefer a non-alcoholic mocktail, you can use sparkling grape juice too.
There’s nothing low carb about liqueurs.
But they taste so good!
And raspberry liqueur?
It’s just plain wonderful.
For a non-alcoholic substitute, you can use 4 teaspoons of raspberry extract.
Fresh Lime Juice
There’s really no substitute for fresh squeezed lime juice!
Did you know, you can pop your lime in the microwave for 15 seconds to help it release more lime juice?
I absolutely love this juicer for fresh lime (or lemon) juice.
Not only is it super easy to use, it really gets all the juice possible from each fruit.
Tips for Making a Raspberry Prosecco Cocktail
Start off by muddling together the fresh raspberries and lime juice.
AnnMarie and I both have this wood muddler.
We got it when we started making our favorite Low Carb Mojitos!
For a yummy variation to this cocktail, you can add a few mint leaves along with the raspberries and lime juice.
Or swap out the raspberries for strawberries.
And you can even get really wild and combine all three kinds of berries!
After the berries are really well-crushed, pour in the raspberry liqueur.
To maintain the bubbles, wait to add the Prosecco until just before serving your cocktails.
Just a few notes about this recipe
AnnMarie and I think the cocktail is perfect just like this!
But we both stopped eating sugar over four years ago, so our taste buds may be different from yours.
You may want to test the cocktail before serving it, and if you feel like it’s too tart, add some simple syrup to sweeten it to taste.
If you’re sugar-free too, you can also stir in your favorite low-carb sweetener.
Add about 1 Tablespoon at a time because you can always add a little more sweetness, but once it’s in there it’s hard to take it away!
The printable version of this recipe is below with all the amounts you’ll need for each ingredient.
Next stop for our virtual Galentine’s brunch menu is our friend Rachel from The Ponds Farmhouse.
