Garnish your champagne flute with coconut paint. Chill your glass in the fridge while you build the cocktail. Add all ingredients except the Mionetto to a shaker tin with ice and shake briefly. Finally, strain into the champagne flute and finish it off with the Mionetto Prosecco.

What inspired the drink?
I was inspired for my cocktail creation by taking traditional recipes and modernizing it in a fun, retro-inspired take to showcase the Mionetto Prosecco. Recently, I’ve been watching a TV show called Miami Vice (1984) and is announced to be re-created at a later date. Authentic to the 1980s – it’s about two undercover detectives in Miami, FL fighting crime and was inspired to create a summer cocktail as a tribute to the TV show. Mionetto as a brand has always been modern and placed an emphasis on innovation to create great, quality wine. Through innovation, the brand has welcomed contemporary fashions and trends while keeping true to its traditions. Similarly, I wanted to represent these concepts with my cocktail. Taking a twist on two cocktails (the technique of the French 75 as well as the flavours of the Miami Vice cocktail to incorporate tasting notes of strawberries and pineapple), while highlighting the delicate notes of this wonderful Mionetto Prosecco.
