Pink limoncello fizz

This is the perfect thirst quencher after a rambling country walk on a sunny autumn day.The thirst quenching trio

Cobra Commander and I brought the limoncello in Venice on our honeymoon, were thought it was about  time that we opened it. I’ve used a cheap champagne here, but it could easily been exchanged for proseco if you want a little more sweetness.  The cocktail would also then be 100% Italian.

So I started by putting one ice cube into the glass. I love it when there is lemon or lime frozen inside the cube. I brought some trays that do that years ago, always keep at least one in the freezer.

Ok, to the cocktail, I measured the in fingers, so pour three fingers of limoncello into the glass. It’s not that much, really, It appears to be more because it was made in a champagne flute and they’re narrow….honest!

I poured equal parts of the two bubbly mixers, but feel free to add more raspberry sparkletini if you want a sweeter fruitier taste.
