Champagne Limoncello

Aug 31st

We still have summer heat which means a refreshing cocktail is needed.

In my opinion there’s nothing better than a fun drink on the weekend.

I try to find something new and different to try each week.

When we traveled to the Amalfi Coast and Capri limoncello was a big.

If you’ve been around any Italian restaurant chances are you’ve seen it.

Sometimes the limoncello itself can be a little tart for me.

Mixing in a little champagne with a sugar rimmed glass is perfect.

Add a little lemon twist for presentation and VOILA!

You’ve got a delicious (and pretty) cocktail perfect for entertaining.

Do you have any favorite summer cocktail to share?
