Well, tonight is Wednesday. That's a great excuse!
Prosecco is an Italian sparkling wine. It is NOT made in the same manner, nor is it nearly as expensive as Champagne. You can get very tasty examples for around $10 - 12. It's lovely mixed with peach purée for a Bellini, or with Crème de Cassis for a Kir Royale or with OJ for Mimosas. and it's affordable enuf to have an "open bottle" at weddings.
It is traditionally not as sweet as Asti Spumante, altho Asti producers are making their wines a bit more sophisticated these days.
