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.
