There is nothing more refreshing than a glass of ice cold lemonade on a hot, summer day! The addition of a few ingredients can elevate your favorite childhood drink into an elegant cocktail. We are loving this recipe from Dig This Design :
A couple sprigs of mint
4 oz cold sparkling wine or lemon flavored sparkling mineral water
2 oz Limoncello liqueur, cold (I keep mine in the freezer; it doesn’t freeze because of the alcohol content)
Put your glasses in the freezer if possible, or at least the fridge so that they are cold.
Put the raspberries on a plate; separated from each other and place in the freezer at least 15 minutes before serving time.
Gently ‘smush’ a couple of small mint leaves and add to each glass along with 5-6 of the frozen raspberry ice cubes.
Add limoncello, then the sparkling wine or water.
Cheers to the weekend!
