LEMON SORBET WITH PROSECCO - Sgroppino al Limone
Traditionally, sgroppino is a refreshing aperitif that is said to have originated in Venice, Italy and is served blended, but this is another way to serve it as a dessert. With the abundance of lemons on the Amalfi Coast, I think it could have been invented there. This is so refreshing on a warm summer evening.
1 cup (250 ml) chilled Prosecco
¼ cup (60 ml) chilled plain or lemon-flavored vodka
Good-quality lemon sorbet
Fresh mint leaves
Pour ½ cup (125 ml) Prosecco into each champagne flute or Irish coffee glass.
Equally divide the limoncello and vodka into each flute or glass.
Add 2 to 3 scoops of lemon sorbet.
Top with mint and and serve immediately.
