Blue Prosecco is set to be next summer's hottest drink

It's already available in the U.S., and we're waiting on it here

Around this time last year, I wrote about Gik's blue wine — a blend of white and red grapes harvested from vineyards outside of Madrid and coloured blue with grape skin pigment, indigo dye, and a non-caloric sweeteners, which apparently all the hipsters in Europe were crazy about. Then, last week, you learned about the existence of rosé gold glitter prosecco, a shimmer of dust that makes everyone's favourite fizzy drink sparkle and lends it a bit of a raspberry flavour.

But while both of those products are not yet available in Australia, their lovechild — blue prosecco — has hit the US market and is already poised to be at every wedding, bachelorette and girls' night you go to when it's finally released in Australia.

Created by the Italian company Fratelli Saraceni –— which sells an array of sparkling, red, and white wine — Blumond is a 7 percent ABV sparkling wine made from prosecco, blue curaçao, and peach.

According to their website, it is a "is a velvety and seductive sparkling wine that is deliciously fruity." Judging by the ingredients, it sounds like it's also pretty sweet, which is probably why the website suggests having it as an aperitif or paired with dessert, particularly at weddings.

At $21.78USD ($29.46AUD) per 750-millilitre bottle, it's also pretty reasonably priced for a nice occasion. We're looking forward to making our outdoor summer drinking even more Instagram-worthy this year.
