Are you gearing up for New Year’s Eve now that Christmas is in the rear view mirror? I always feel a little sad when Christmas is over, but it’s exciting to look forward to a new year! These days with three kids under 10 we don’t go out on New Year’s Eve but I still like to enjoy my midnight toast with my main squeeze, even if it’s on the couch! This year I’ll be celebrating with this delicious Limoncello Prosecco Cocktail, sometimes also called Sorrento Sparklers!
For those that aren’t familiar, both Limoncello and Prosecco are Italian in origin. Prosecco is a sparkling white wine very similar to Champagne but less expensive and I find it a little more fruity-it’s delicious if you’re a fan of sparkling wines! As for Limoncello, it is an Italian lemon flavored liqueur (I have a recipe to make your own here) that is traditionally served after dinner. I first tried limoncello when my husband and I were living in Italy about eleven years ago-it’s a funny story I go into detail about here if you want to hear it!
Back to the cocktail….this is a super simple 2 ingredient recipe! Simply pour one shot of Limoncello into the bottom of a Champagne flute and top off with Prosecco, garnish with lemon rind or mint if you care to fancy it up! It doesn’t get much more simple and is a fun delicious twist on standard sparkly!
How will you be celebrating New Year’s Eve this year? Do you ring in the New Year with a toast?
