Sgroppino al Limone {Lemon Sgroppino}


What is a Sgroppino you ask? Well it’s pretty much a boozy Italian smoothie! This Sgroppino al Limone {Lemon Sgroppino} is as it’s name suggests incredibly lemony. It’s a refreshing chilled cocktail that’s perfect to sip during these warm okay who am I kidding HOT HOT HOT summer months. 

I use my HOMEMADE LIMONCELLO but you can also substitute lemon vodka. The Sgroppino is normally served in chilled champagne flutes but I like the idea of small Sgroppino shooters ; )
