Our Amalfi holiday comes back in flashes of deliciousness. One such memory is a cocktail made of Prosecco and Limoncello. The Lemon Spritzer recipe below is for 4 persons. I like to add a bit more Prosecco to tone down the Limoncello, but you decide!
“Spritzer is derived from the variant of the German language spoken in Austria, where the drink is very popular. A “sweet spritzer” using fizzy lemonade instead of soda water is also popular.(Sauergespritzter). In most of Germany, the word “Schorle” is used to denote a Spritzer.”
So with this recipe you will have the best of both worlds. I love Prosecco, so to me it reminds me of Italy. However if you are from Germany you can try the more traditional version.

There are many options on how to decorate your drink. In my opinion, my favorite way of doing is to keep it simple. With the wine and soda combination, I seldom add garnish. That said, you can garnish your drinks with fresh slices of lemon, fresh mint leaves, or thyme.
As long as you have the right glass – that’s very important for “the look”.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
