2 ounces Limoncello *approximately 60 ml, see Note #1 and 3 below 1 ounce sparkling water *approximately 90 ml 3 ounces Prosecco *approximately 30 ml 3 lemon slices 1 mint sprig
To a large wine glass add ice and slide 2-3 thinly sliced lemon slices into the glass in between the ice and the glass. Pour the Limoncello over the ice and add the sparkling water. Slowly pour in Prosecco and stir gently. Garnish with a fresh mint sprig. See Note #2 below for pitcher proportions.
Note #1- This Measuring Shot Glass is an easy way to measure when making a single drink. However, I prefer using my Citrus Juicer with Measuring Cup.
Note #2- Proportions for a Pitcher:
750 milliliter bottle of Prosecco
2 cups Limoncello
1 cup Sparkling Water
Instructions for a Pitcher:
Add the limoncello, sparkling and Prosecco to the pitcher first.
Layer in lemon slices.
Add ice and stir gently again.
Note #3- Storing the Limoncello in the freezer is a wonderful way to extend the life of the liqueur and helps to make this cocktail icy cold. Calories: 248 kcal | Carbohydrates: 23 g | Protein: 0.1 g | Sodium: 12 mg | Potassium: 75 mg | Sugar: 23 g | Calcium: 9 mg | Iron: 0.3 mg
