Nectarines and Berries in Prosecco Wine
This fruit salad with Italian fizz is a light, refreshing conclusion to a summer meal or a colorful addition to a brunch menu.
Why This Recipe Works
For our nectarines and berries in prosecco recipe, we tried making the fruit salad by just pouring prosecco over lightly sugared nectarines and berries, but the results were disappointing and the flavors disparate. Next, we tossed the fruit with sugar and allowed the mixture to macerate in the refrigerator. The nectarines and berries softened and released some of their juices, and their flavors were wonderfully infused. We found that we could pour chilled Prosecco over the macerated fruit—the syrupy juices mixed with the wine so that no one flavor stood out and the nectarines and berries in prosecco recipe was a harmonious blend of fruit and fizz.
