Limoncello spritz is a refreshing and zesty cocktail that originates from Italy. It is traditionally enjoyed during the summer months, as the bright and citrusy flavors are the perfect accompaniment to warm weather.
The main ingredients in a limoncello spritz are limoncello, a lemon liqueur that is typically made in the Amalfi Coast region of Italy, Prosecco, an Italian sparkling wine, and soda water. The combination of these ingredients results in a light and effervescent drink that is both sweet and tart.
One of the things that makes the limoncello spritz special is the fact that it is made with limoncello, which is a traditional Italian liqueur that is made from the zest of Sorrento lemons. The lemons are steeped in grain alcohol for several weeks, which allows the flavors and oils from the zest to infuse into the alcohol. The resulting liqueur is then sweetened with simple syrup to balance out the tartness of the lemon.
