prosecco infused ricotta cheese with herbs, canadian prosciutto, wild flower honeycomb, toasted walnuts, and glazed figs

brunch is a weekend tradition that i insist upon.
lazy saturdays or sundays spent with family and close friends, gathered around a table of food is how i will always choose to spend my time.  that and hiking, i love hiking.

at the centre of any good brunch is a good cocktail, and the core of a good cocktail, is prosecco. #fact
with a delicate, lively palate of citrus, honey and florals, La Marca Prosecco, is a crowd pleasing wine that can be used in both classic brunch cocktails, as well as add a splash of flavour to a simple recipe.

La Marca Prosecco recently reached out to me with some of their lovely bubbles which i more than indulged in.  
and, they also included a brunch appropriate recipe which made me appreciate prosecco in a new light.
enjoy it with traditional brunch favourites like fritattas, waffles or fruit, or at dinner with seafood, mild cheeses, and tomato-based dishes.  either way, it's the perfect accessory to summer and weekends.
 cheers. happy brunching. xo.
