Whether homemade or store-bought, always keep a bottle of limoncello in your freezer!
Every year, when Meyer lemons are in season, I make several batches of limoncello. So there are always a couple of bottles of the fragrant liqueur tucked away in my freezer! And aside from sipping it after dinner from time to time, it often ends up in this glorious Bellini.
Serve this simple cocktail for any occasion – from dinner parties to relaxing afternoons
I love serving the Bellini for special occasions, but it’s so easy to assemble that it’s a perfect candidate for an impromptu cocktail! Whether you use store-bought limoncello or make your own, this simple cocktail is sure to delight.
Che bello Bellini… Cin cin!
active time: 5 min
- 4 1/2 oz (135 ml) limoncello
- 3 oz (90 ml) fresh Meyer lemon or regular lemon juice
- 1 bottle Prosecco (750 ml)
- 6 lemon twists
- Place the limoncello and lemon juice in a shaker with a couple of large ice cubes. Stir until the mixture is well chilled. Pour in equal measure into six Champagne flutes. Top with the Prosecco. Garnish with the lemon twists and serve immediately.
I’ve run out of homemade limoncello, and I miss it! As soon as my trees give me more lemons, I need to make more. I’m imagining what bright, fresh flavor this cocktail must have.
How perfect for say, Mother’s day 😉 Looks delicious and so refreshing.
