No one wants to drink their calories, but sometimes we all deserve to treat ourselves. After a long weekend of traveling I was ready to kick back, watch the sunset, and reward myself with a delicious cocktail. Instead of reaching for my usual vodka-water with a lime, I decided to experiment with one of my favorites– limoncello. I got creative with ingredients that I already had in my refrigerator. Here’s my take on a delicious and refreshing limoncello spritzer:
- 1 shot of limoncello
- 5 oz. sparkling water
- 5 oz. prosecco or your favorite sparkling white wine
- 1 lemon slice for garnish.
- 1/2 cup ice
Add ice cubs to a tall glass. Pour the shot of limoncello into the glass, followed by the sparkling water. Top the drink off with the prosecco and mix lightly. Garnish with the slice of lemon and enjoy!
