Friendship, fun and KORBEL Prosecco create the best Friendsgiving

KORBEL

By Liane M. Roth

Whether you are throwing an over-the-top feast or a scaled down virtual celebration, this year’s Friendsgiving can still be a joyous occasion despite pandemic restrictions. Gather friends together to celebrate golden moments featuring sparkling KORBEL Prosecco, mouthwatering nibbles and plenty of hilarity.

A Friendsgiving is the perfect occasion to serve one or both of these holiday cocktails featuring KORBEL Prosecco, a fruit-forward, light and crisp sparkling wine with the aromas of white peaches, pear and lemon zest. The flavors are delicate, bright and alive on the tongue, providing the perfect pairing with traditional and nontraditional Thanksgiving eats. If your event is online, send copies of the recipes in advance so everyone can raise a glass together in honor of friendships far and near.

For in-person gatherings, along with the cocktails, provide the main entree and ask guests to bring an appetizer, side dish or dessert to share. If you’re hosting a virtual party, suggest everyone make their favorite fall snack, traditional Thanksgiving dish or decadent dessert and exchange the recipes.

One of the pleasures of a Friendsgiving is planning the event, shopping for food, decorating the table and picking out your outfit. This can also be the most stressful part of the holiday, especially keeping track of everything and hoping nothing gets forgotten. Cross one shopping trip off your list by ordering your KORBEL Prosecco from drizly.com, which partners with retailers in your area and offers delivery to your doorstep in about an hour. Visit their website, enter the number of bottles of KORBEL Prosecco you will need based on your RSVPs, choose your store, enter your address and in about 60 minutes your order will arrive.

Design your Friendsgiving as a golden opportunity to be thankful for the camaraderie of friends, whether together or apart, to share laughter, love and happy memories and discuss hopes and dreams for the future. Make this one the best ever with delicious food, sparkling KORBEL Prosecco cocktails and lots of laughter.
