Sparkling Lemon Strawberry Springtini!

Cheers to Spring!

Sparkling Lemon Strawberry Springtini

For each drink:

Place martini or margarita glass in the freezer for 15 minutes to chill the glass.

Place 3 ounces (1/2 of a 6 ounce cup) Strawberry Italian Ice in the bottom of the glass.

Pour 1 ounce Limoncello over the Strawberry Italian Ice

Fill the glass with sparkling wine or champagne. Stir gently, garnish with a lemon slice, strawberry and mint. Serve with a small spoon to scoop up the Italian Ice.

You can make this drink sweeter by using a sweet sparkling wine. Rosé sparkling wine is fabulous in this “tini” as well!  I like Aimery Cremant de Limoux Brut  Rosé for this “tini” – available at Mr. Bill’s Wine Cellar in Roanoke, Virginia.

    Becky that sounds absolutely delicious and we have two bottles of that delicious creamy limoncello from the company in Ohio to add to it. I’ll save the recipe and make it when the six of us get together.
