    YUM. It really is good. I love prosecco but didn't have any on hand. Used a brut champagne and loved it. Lemon zest is a must.  -  01 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought this had a nice refreshing flavor. It kind of reminded me of a lighter more citrusy version of a sangria. At first I wasn't going to add the lemon rind, but am glad I did after reading the one review. It is neccessary! I used the finest grater I had and just added some to taste. For the wine, I used sparkling Moscato. I also made 1/2 recipe no problem. It actually made enough for one drink. The only problem I have is with the color. It is like a non-clear dark grapefruit looking color. The taste, though, outweighs that.  -  05 Jan 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
