The Limoncello Spritz is a bright, refreshing cocktail bursting with lemon flavor! It’s the perfect drink to sip poolside on warm summer days.
Limoncello is an Italian liqueur that’s made by soaking lemon zest (i.e. yellow skin of a lemon, not the white pith underneath the flesh) in a neutral-flavored grain alcohol — typically vodka — for at least 1 month.
It has an ABV of around 28% to 32% and is vibrant yellow in color. Limoncello has a sweet, pronounced lemon flavor and a thicker consistency (almost like syrup!).
Limoncello can be sipped slowly on its own in a shot glass as an aperitif or after a meal as a dessert.
