This Venetian cocktail is probably one of the easiest yet most delicious cocktails to prepare. It was invented between 1934 and 1948 and named after its unique pink color that reminded its creator of the toga in a painting by the artist Giovanni Bellini.

1 oz Prosecco

Combine the two ingredients in the shaker (make sure that the Prosecco is served cold), shake and stir into a glass. Cheers!
