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.

Make this one the best ever with delicious food, sparkling KORBEL Prosecco cocktails and lots of laughter.
