Limoncello Cocktail – Serves 6

Limoncello and Prosecco – what’s not to like?!  This cocktail is my welcome drink for the Sicilian Night Supper Club on 7th March 2015.  Limoncello is originally a Sicilian drink essentially made from Sorrento lemons, sugar syrup and Grappa (95% proof).  It is the second most popular liqueur in Italy and has recently become popular in other parts of the world too.

Ingredients

½ Lemonamalfi-dream-limoncello-cocktail

6 tablespoons of limoncello

1 Bottle of chilled Prosecco

Take 6 champagne flutes and run the cut side of the lemon around the rim of each glass just to wet it a little.

Put the sugar on a plate and dip the rim of each glass in it to frost the edge.

Pour a tablespoon of limoncello into each glass and top up with Prosecco. Garnish with mint and a slice of lemon.

Serve straight away.
