What inspired the drink?

Once again a cocktail ode to my childhood at my nonnas house. The love of Italian treats and Italian sparkling. I wanted this drink to show the versatility of Prosecco and this is my happy interpretation of that. A light airy drink that has been made with love. The cocktail is close to dessert like and is a play on the treat pizzelle with the vanilla & anise along with the egg. The Prosecco adds a playful effervescence and balancing acidity making it the star of this drink.
