Around this time last year, we wrote about Gik's blue wine –a blend of white and red grapes harvested from vineyards outside of Madrid and colored 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, we learned about the existence of rose gold glitter prosecco, a shimmer of dust that makes everyone's favorite fizzy drink sparkle and lends it a bit of a raspberry flavor.
But while both of those products are not yet available in the US, their lovechild–blue prosecco–has hit the market and is already poised to be at every wedding bachelorette girls' night you go to this year.
Created by the Italian company Fratelli Saraceni–which sells an array of sparkling, red, and white wine–Blumond is a 7% 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 $21.78 per 750 ml bottle, it's also pretty reasonably priced for a nice occasion. You can order one here, and make your outdoor summer drinking even more Instagram-worthy this year.
