INGREDIENTS:

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

UTENSILS:

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

COOKING METHOD:

  1. Fill the champagne glass with ice and put it to the side as the Italian Limoncello Cocktail is best served chilled.
  2. Fill a tall glass with ice and add 30ml of Limoncello.
  3. Then add 30ml of Italian white wine and 15ml of Frangelico.

  5. Next add 15ml of fresh lemon juice and a dash of sugar syrup.
  6. Remove the ice from the champagne glass as it should be nice and chilled by now.
  7. Cover the tall glass with the cocktail shaker and shake it nice and hard for 1-2 minutes.
  8. GIUSEPPE’S TIP: The harder you shake it, the better the Italian Limoncello Cocktail will be.

  9. 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.
