Lo Scintillante - An Italian Apertif

Lo Scintillante, it's a feast for the eyes and it titillates your taste buds!

The recipe for Lo Scintillante calls for Cocchi and Prosecco. The combination results in a slightly sweet cocktail with just hints of spice and cloves. Perfect for the Italian wedding!

Where to buy: Cocchi Aperitivo Americano is a wine-based apéritif. It can be found at high-end liquor stores and online. If you can't find it, consider substituting any white/dry apperitif - your favorite vermouth or Lillet Blanc.

  • 1 white sugar cube
  • 2 ounces chilled Cocchi Aperitivo Americano
  • 2 ounces chilled Prosecco
  • Orange twist, for garnish

Place sugar cube in a champagne flute, add Cocchi Apertivo Americano, and stir briefly. Top with Prosecco and garnish with orange twist.
