Don’t be jealous, but Mionetto Prosecco asked me to share another post with you today.  Of course I said yes…because hello?  It’s Mionetto. (read:  SO GOOD.)  So, sit back, take notes, and get ready to make this sweet little celebratory drink yourself!

 

There’s just something wonderful about this time of year.

Of course, I know…it’s the holiday season.  Friends and family and gifts and parties are abundant.  But to me, it’s more than that.

It seems that in the week between Christmas and New Years, there is a chance to just relax.  Unwind.  Do the little things you’ve put off all year, or rather, stop doing all the little things you do all year.  There’s no need to HAVE to leave the house if you don’t want to (me, I never want to), so there is plenty of time to sit at home and curl up on the couch with a movie or just soak in the last few days of holiday lights on your tree.

And why not do all of that with a little celebratory drink?

Mionetto Prosecco became a staple here in our house earlier this year when I was asked to work with them on a campaign, and since that time, we have always had a bottle on hand, JUST IN CASE.  You never know when the day may call for a celebration (like our engagement night!) or when a Sunday night could use just a little bit of luxury.  We keep it around for all of these occasions.  Sparkly and light, and from Northern Italy (one of my favorite places in the world to visit.)  The Mionetto Prestige Brut has fresh flavors of green apples, pears and honey. It’s elegant enough to indulge for a special occasion yet affordable and playful enough not to need one.  Perfect, right?

Well, there’s even better news.

Mionetto Prosecco comes in PLENTY of sizes.  The typical size, perfect for two or four to celebrate with.  But what if it’s just YOU?  Or you and your sweetheart?  Try to 187ml size.  So cute and great to keep on hand in the fridge for everyday special occasions.  Don’t you love them?

Maybe you have lots of reasons to celebrate – you have a close family, a wonderful spouse, beautiful kids.  Or maybe you don’t need such a big thing to be thankful for.  Maybe you just want to celebrate that you have 17 minutes to put your feet up.  Maybe you should celebrate that you REALLY enjoy the “free gift with purchase” you wrangled for yourself this year from the cosmetics counter.

Of course! Drink to that.  Those free gifts are hit or miss, so if it’s a good one, cheers to you.

How about celebrating with ALL of your friends?  Then you need the giant bottle!  1.5 liters of sparkling goodness.  Isn’t that exactly the news you needed to hear?  Isn’t that reason enough to celebrate?

Me?  I am celebrating a huge year.  It’s been such a whirlwind, I honestly can’t believe I packed all of it in to only 12 months.  A new house, in a new state, which led to a move halfway across the country.  An engagement, a wedding.  Seven different countries on a few amazing vacations.  A family I adore, including the family I just married in to.  I have a lot to be thankful for…and believe me – I am thankful.

So, my new husband and I are kicking back with a drink I created using Mionetto Prosecco.  Think Lemondrop Martini, but it’s bubbly, and I do love bubbly. Bubbly just feels more exciting, doesn’t it?  More fanciful?

Yes, Yes it does.

Celebrate!
