Bubbly Bunny Limoncello

by Jackie FogartieFebruary 25, 2016

The Italians have given us so many great things – lasagna, yummy wines and of course pizza – just to name a few. I’m now adding limoncello cocktails to the list! Limoncello is a lemon flavored liquor that has been imbibed as an after dinner drink in Italy for years. I’ve started using it in all my spring cocktails as the light, citrus flavor just screams spring to me!

With Easter being the unofficial kickoff to spring, I’ve got a limoncello cocktail that only requires only two ingredients and is the perfect accompaniment to your spring or Easter soiree.

Bubbly limoncello (or for Easter, bubbly bunny limoncello) is just how it sounds – a combination of champagne and limoncello. Simply combine equal parts limoncello and champagne (or any sparkling wine of your choice) for a refreshing, tangy and sparkly drink that is perfect for springtime! If you want a less potent drink but still want the bubbles, simply mix the limoncello with sparkling water.

To display in a festive way, nestle the drinks in a bed of faux moss. Moss can be found in varying shades of green at any local craft store. Dress up the drinks even more with customized stir sticks. Using bamboo sticks, skewer jelly beans for a colorful touch or add a tie or two of Easter themed ribbon.

Serving this light, festive drink is the perfect way to celebrate Easter and to kick off spring!
