DharMag December 2016 Cocktails Tintoretto: recipe and ingredients of the nephew of the Bellini drink

Tintoretto cocktail recipe, prosecco with pomegranate juice drink The Tintoretto cocktail is a variant of the Bellini drink made with Prosecco and pomegranate juice. It is a very fresh and sharp drink, perfect as an aperitif or an undemanding drink.

Its main strength are the freshness and the extreme drink-ability, not coincidentally it’s also an excellent cocktail for brunch or to accompany fish dinners.

About Tintoretto doses, it depends on the opportunities and time of the day. If you want a light drink on the fly you can start from 1/2 of Prosecco and 1/2 of pomegranate juice.

If you want a more substantial drink opt for a 1 to 2 ratio of juice and Prosecco.

In any case it is always a glass of Prosecco, so Tintoretto’s alcohol content it is not so high.

There is only a single secret to make the perfect Tintoretto: make sure that pomegranates are perfectly ripe, otherwise it would be too sour.

We assume that you’ll wisely use real fruit juice: with only two ingredients the quality of them is crucial for this drink.

If you have to fix a very acid cocktail, add 1 cl of sugar syrup for every glass.
