Prosit Prosecco

The German translation for New Year greetings is of course literal-- Prosit Neujahr, or Toast the New Year. Our family always says Prost whenever we make a toast, a habit formed from clinging glasses every night we sat at my grandparents' dinner table in Germany. The other tradition we have brought back from Europe is drinking prosecco instead of champagne; personally, prosecco is much tastier, just as bubbly and festive, and a good bottle is about $14. Fortunately, the PA wine authority does carry a few brands, including Mionetto (shown above is Zardetto, image from ms.tea/creative commons.) I've brought a bottle of the Italian sparkling wine to many birthday dinners and it has always been a hit.

It also makes for a delish Poinsettia cocktail, although I love prosecco straight up.

Cheers to a Happy New Year!
