Strawberry Limoncello Spritz

I was sipping on this refreshing Strawberry Limoncello Spritz to prep for our first trip as a family to Italy! With just a handful of ingredients and a few steps, I whipped this up in 5 minutes.

Limoncello is a citrusy Italian liqueur that perfectly complements strawberry puree. Prosecco adds refreshing bubbles, but feel free to use sparkling white or champagne if you prefer. I used a splash of plain sparkling water, but get creative with flavored varieties. Garnish with strawberries, a lemon slice, and edible flower for the finishing touches and enjoy!

Ingredients for the Strawberry Limoncello Spritz

  • Limoncello: This sweet and citrusy liqueur adds a burst of brightness. I like Caravella Limoncello.
  • Strawberry Puree: Made from fresh strawberries, puree infuses the cocktail with a vibrant hue and juicy sweetness. I used Fresh Victor Strawberry & Lemon.
  • Prosecco: Choose a crisp and effervescent prosecco for the spritz, like Mionetto Prosecco.
  • Sparkling Water: Adding a splash of sparkling water keeps the drink light and refreshing. I had LaCroix.
  • Lemon Slice, Strawberries, Edible Flowers: Add a lemon slice, fresh strawberries, and an edible flower to complete the drink!

Frequently Asked Questions

What is limoncello, and where does it come from?

Limoncello is a traditional Italian liqueur made from lemon zest, alcohol, water, and sugar. It originates from Southern Italy, particularly the Amalfi Coast and the islands of Capri and Sorrento. Known for its bright yellow hue and citrusy flavor, limoncello is often enjoyed as a refreshing after-dinner digestif or used in cocktails like the Strawberry Limoncello spritz!

Can I use frozen strawberries instead of fresh for the puree?

While I recommend fresh strawberries for their vibrant flavor and color, you can use frozen strawberries in a pinch. Simply thaw them before blending into a puree, and adjust the sweetness as needed.

What’s the best substitute for prosecco if I don’t have any on hand?

If you don’t have prosecco, substitute it with another sparkling wine, such as champagne or cava. You can also use a dry white wine combined with a splash of club soda for an effervescent finish.

Is there a non-alcoholic version of the Strawberry Limoncello Spritz?

Easily create a non-alcoholic version of the Strawberry Limoncello Spritz by omitting the limoncello and prosecco. Mix strawberry puree with sparkling water and a splash of lemon juice for a refreshing mocktail that’s perfect for all ages.
