Summer is not over yet, even though it may seem that way with stores filling up with Halloween and even Christmas stuff. Honestly, I got excited shopping for some fall themed tabletop pieces at Hobby Lobby. But the moment I stepped outside, I was met with bright sun and warm air and I was instantly reminded that we have at least two more months of this weather. So, despite placemats with pumpkins and a black cat shaped front door wreath, I decided to play with a few ingredients to create a summer-friendly drink.
I used homemade Limoncello, which was a project of mine a few months back. It was really easy to make, but it took a long time to steep. Before that, we’ve always had a bottle of store bought Limoncello in our freezer, which will work just as well in this recipe.
I strongly recommend using Moscato, as it is a much sweeter sparkling wine than the majority of them. Prosecco is perfect to mix with something like an orange juice, but mixed with Limoncello it’s just too dry.
For 1 drink, mix 6 oz of Moscato with 1 Tb (1/5 oz) of Limoncello. If you like your drinks stronger, add extra Limoncello. Add a few raspberries to the glass and enjoy!
