3 ounces NUVO Sparkling Liqueur

2 each Raspberries and Blackberries

Gently muddle raspberries and blackberries in mixing glass. Add prosecco and stir. Pour into champagne flute. Top with NUVO Sparkling Liqueur.

The flavor of The Midnight Kiss is exceptional. However the first swallow is all fruit pulp; hardly lovely for a cocktail in my opinion. Aesthetically this is beautiful to look at as is the case with a Mojito for instance. But muddled drinks jam drinking straws and become continuous mouthfuls of food rather than sipping drinks. Perhaps strain the berries and prosecco into the champagne flute. Love the essence of The Midnight Kiss, but not the fruited floater experience.
