Raspberry-Lemon Prosecco Cocktail

Raspberry-Lemon Prosecco Cocktail

This refreshing drink is ideal for toasting the start of summer. You can use any sparkling white wine, but we enjoy the crispness of Italian prosecco. Make the lemon syrup a day ahead, but stir in the wine just before serving so it doesn't lose its fizz.
