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.
