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.

Can you make this up and keep in the refrigerator?
You can, but you will lose all the effervescence of the champagne. I’ve had it the next day and its not as good.
