Servings 1


  • Classic champagne glass
  • Cocktail shaker
  • 15/30 maker mixer nip
  • Small strainer


  • Ice
  • 30 ml Limoncello
  • 30 ml Italian white wine Pinot Grigio is recommended
  • 15 ml Frangelico
  • 15 ml lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • Dash of sugar syrup Made by reducing water and sugar in a small pot over the stove


  • Fill the champagne glass with ice and put it to the side as the Italian Limoncello Cocktail is best served chilled.
  • Fill a tall glass with ice and add 30ml of Limoncello.
  • Then add 30ml of Italian white wine and 15ml of Frangelico.
  • Next add 15ml of fresh lemon juice and a dash of sugar syrup.
  • Remove the ice from the champagne glass as it should be nice and chilled by now.
  • Cover the tall glass with the cocktail shaker and shake it nice and hard for 1-2 minutes.
  • Place a small strainer on top of the champagne glass and pour the mixture over the top – this will help to avoid any pulp or pips from the lemon from falling in.
  • Now…for the finishing touch! Twist a lemon rind over the top of the glass and rub the flesh side against the rim of the glass..and drop it in.
  • E ora si mangia, Vincenzo’s Plate….Enjoy!
