One of the best ways to enjoy a glass of Pizzini Prosecco is to make it a spritz. Because of the simplicity of a spritz, many different flavour combos work well - so there’s something for everyone’s palate.
Simply add a splash of soda to your Pizzini Prosecco and your favourite fresh fruit juice.
Fresh pear and apple juice with some lemon, lime and orange slices will take your glass of Prosecco to party status.
