Cucumber Champagne Martini Recipe {Prosecco}

My version of a Champagne Martini! This cocktail won drink of the night at our Golden Globes Skinnygirls party.

sweet cucumber champagne martini recipe made with Skinnygirl products

Okay so technically I didn’t use Champagne, I used Prosecco.  To-may-to, to-mah-to it’s all the same, right?!  Prosecco is an Italian sparkling white wine made from Prosecco “Glera” grapes.  Champagne is a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France.  I dare you to tell me a difference if you without knowing.

I had my first Champagne Martini at a local restaurant almost six years ago.  It was on a whim of our bartender trying a new recipe on me.  I was game, and fell in love with it.  every now and then I will ask a bartender to concoct one for me.  They usually wing it, and I am cool with that.  I decided to finally throw together my own version of a Champagne Martini.

1.5 oz. Skinnygirl cucumber vodka

1/2 ounce orange liqueur

1 teaspoon superfine sugar

2 oz. Skinnygirl Prosecco

garnish with sugar and cucumber slice

In a shaker mix cucumber vodka, orange liqueur, and fine sugar in a cocktail shaker  with ice a 1/3 of ice.   Give it a good shaking.  Dip the rim of a champagne flute in water and then in sugar.  Pour shaker contents in a champagne flute and top with Skinnygirl Prosecco.  Add a garnish of cucumber and serve.

It’s a delightful drink and made our list of must have awards show drinks!
