Sgroppino cocktail

For those of you still enjoying the last few days of warmer weather, this sgroppino cocktail is for you. An icy cold drink that hails from Italy, it is bursting with lemon flavors and lots of bubbles. Enjoy it as an aperitif, a digestif or a palate cleanser (or all three if that’s how you roll).

The sgroppino cocktail is three ingredients: lemon sorbet, prosecco and vodka. I used a store bought sorbet because I didn’t have time to make my own. Honestly, I wasn’t super happy about the ingredients in the store bought versions so next time I’ll be making my own using this lemon sorbet recipe. My guess is it will taste a lot better.

Some versions use a blender to combine the ingredients, but I found it easier to whisk everything together in a cocktail shaker (or a bowl if you don’t have a shaker). There is less of a mess to clean and it’s super easy to whisk together. Plus, it’s not as loud. And I’m all about things not being loud in the house.
