Lime Ginger Fizz
Fans of Moscow Mules will love this tart, bubbly Lime Ginger Fizz: Instead of vodka, this drink gets its kick from prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine that’s lighter and sweeter than its French cousin, champagne.
This simple, bright cocktail has only three ingredients: honey-ginger simple syrup, prosecco, and lime juice. It’s a light, slightly sweet and tart drink that’s perfect for any party or special celebration — no heavy ingredients or overpowering flavors.
You can buy flavored simple syrups at the store, but they’re so easy to make at home and since you control the ingredients, you know exactly what’s going in your syrup.
To make honey-ginger simple syrup at home, all you need is honey, ginger, and water. It’s delicious in this cocktail, of course, but you can also make a big batch and use it to flavor your coffee, tea, or other drinks as a natural sweetener.
2 fl. oz. fresh lime juice, chilled
1 fl. oz. Honey Ginger Simple Syrup, chilled
4 fl. oz. prosecco, chilled
1 thin slice lime (for garnish; optional)
Place lime juice, simple syrup, and prosecco in a champagne flute; mix gently to blend.
Garnish drink with lime slice, if desired.
