If I have to be honest with everyone, I have two go to drinks in the summertime – neither of which should be a surprise to anybody who’s been a long time reader of this blog. When it comes to summer cocktails, I just don’t think it gets much better than mojitos for yourself, or a big picture of sangria for get-together’s.
I’m always trying to come up with new ways to reinvent sangria (Fireball sangria, hello!), so when I was perusing my liquor cabinet this past weekend to figure out a new combination, I spied the limoncello and thought to myself, “Well, I can definitely do something with that!”
Limoncello is another one of my summer favorites- whether you serve it straight over ice or with a splash of soda, it is always citrusy and refreshing- with just the right about of sweetness. Mixed together here with prosecco or champagne and a little citrus juice, this Champagne Limoncello Sangria is just one more great reason to pour yourself a drink this patio season.
Champagne Limoncello Sangria
- 1/2 bottle prosecco
- 1 cup orange-pineapple juice
- 1 1/2 cups limoncello
- frozen whole strawberries and mango chunks
- Add frozen fruit to a pitcher or carafe.
- Pour in prosecco, juice and limoncello; stir to combine.
