Garden Limoncello Spritz - The Social Sipper

Garden Limoncello Spritz

Step up your spritz this season with the Garden Limoncello Spritz. In collaboration with IL Tramonto!

Limoncello is one of those classic beverages that always reminds me of some of my favorite memories from Italy. This Italian lemon liqueur is predominantly produced in Southern Italy and is made from the zest of lemons. Typically, Limoncello can be served by itself and chilled as an apéritif or digestif, which means it’s best enjoyed before or after a meal for digestion. But, this liqueur is AMAZING in cocktails as well, and it’s the perfect addition to the Garden Limoncello Spritz!

How to Make the Garden Limoncello Spritz

For this recipe, all you have to do is add some fresh cucumber and mint to a cocktail glass. Then mix in the best ingredient, IL Tramonto ‘s Limoncello and use a muddler or bar spoon to gently muddle the mint and cucumber together with the Limoncello. This will help release all the flavor notes from each ingredient. Finally, add ice, prosecco, and a splash of sparkling water to the glass and stir. This will give your spritz the most effervescent finish. And don’t forget to garnish with mint and lemon for the final touch!

Different Ways to Use Limoncello

I love that there are so many different ways to use Limoncello too because of it’s beautiful citrus aromas and lightly sweetened finish. It could even be added to cake batter and baked to create the most amazingly moist Limoncello Lemon Cake. Or use it in a Lemon Tiramisu for a twist on a classic recipe. I even like to splash a little into a cup of green tea for a burst of citrus goodness. The possibilities are endless with IL Tramonto ‘s Limoncello. But, I’m most excited to add it to the Garden Limoncello Spritz alllll summer long for my new favorite spritz this season!
