Limoncello Spritz

Friday, February 20, 2015

I'm not afraid to admit that I love a healthy pour of soda atop almost anything I'm drinking. Americanos, Campari & Sodas, and any liqueur (but especially raspberry) topped with sparkling water were practically designed with me in mind; they're basically adult Italian sodas. So this limoncello spritz is right up my alley, and a perfect ray of sunshine during a cold, dark winter.

Limoncello Spritz

3 oz dry white wine
1 oz limoncello
soda water
lemon peel 

Fill a Collins glass with ice. Add white wine, limoncello, then top with soda water. Garnish with a lemon peel.

Notes: I'm always apt to chose French (or Northern California) wines, but I'm betting an Italian Verdicchio or Pinot Grigio would be perfect paired with limoncello in this Mediterranean sipper. Cin cin!
