It was a hot weekend. A very, very, hot weekend. Hot days require cooling, refreshing drinks. And this spritzer is one of them. I brought back a bottle of Limoncello last year when I went on a holiday to Italy. And I still have a lot of Limoncello left, not knowing what to do with it and there are only so many times you can make Nigella Lawson’s Limoncello trifle without putting on a LOT OF POUNDS.
The limoncello is sweet on its own so you don’t need to add any sort of syrup or sugar – this is an adult version of a sparkling lemonade after all. But if you have a sweet tooth and want it really sweet, then please do add according to your tastebuds!
Ingredients: (for 1 tall glass)
Limoncello (one shot glass portion approx. 35ml)
1 tbsp of lemon juice
1. In a tall glass, fill it up with ice cubes.
2. Add the limoncello and the lemon juice.
3. Top up with sparkling water.
4. Swirl and stir with your straw to mix it all up.
