Prosecco vs other sparkling wines

Our default for bubbly cocktails is Prosecco, which we prefer over champagne. Why? A great bottle of Prosecco is cheaper than a great bottle of Champagne, because the manufacturing process is easier (read more at Prosecco vs Champagne). Also, we like the flavor even better! Feel free to use whatever sparkling wine you like, just make sure it is “brut” or dry. Here are the differences between some popular sparkling wines:

  • Prosecco: Italian sparkling wine. It’s a little sweeter than champagne and has lighter bubbles. It’s fruity and flowery, with notes of apple, pear and lemon.
  • Champagne: French sparkling wine. It tastes bubbly and fruity, with undertones of almond and orange. It’s typically the most expensive sparkling wine.
  • Cava: Spanish sparkling wine. It has more citrus notes, and is a little more savory and less fruity.
