Take A Sip Of: Sgroppino (Italian cocktail.)

We are back from an AMAZING trip to NYC. More to come on Fashion Week 2011 and some fab pics too. BUT, while we were there, we certainly had some delicious cocktails and food. I am a big fan of Little Italy, THE Italy, Giada and basically many other things de Italia so it makes sense my first sip of this was delightful. Sgroppino is an Italian cocktail pairing Prosecco (Italian champagne) with vodka. Yes, it is fantastic. Yes, it is perfect for Spring. Light and refreshing, enjoy every sip. Have a great weekend. Comments are off because it is going to be 70 degrees here this weekend so I will be outside. See you Monday.


Ingredients:
  • 1 cup chilled Prosecco (Italian sparkling white wine)
  • 2 tablespoons chilled vodka
  • 1/3 cup frozen lemon sorbet
  • 1/4 teaspoon chopped fresh mint leaves
Directions:
Pour the Prosecco and vodka into 2 Champagne flutes, diving equally. Spoon a scoop of sorbet into each flute. Sprinkle with mint and serve immediately
