I’ve been living in a dreamland lately.

It’s been sort of the summer that wasn’t here with some circumstances that have kept us from enjoying the pool, beach, and sunshine in general.

So I’ve been treating myself to tastes of Italy and have been going full on escapist with things like Italian Limoncello Cheesecake.

Why not add an elegant, easy Italian cocktail to the mix so I really get that far flung vacation feel?

That’s exactly the vibes these limoncello prosecco spritzers throw down.

But not only do they taste like a trip to the sunny Italian coast, they also have some serious celebration vibes so they’d be a lovely addition to the holidays.

I could totally see toasting with these on Christmas eve or even ringing in the New Year with a glass of this in hand.

A lot of people use the term champagne very loosely to mean any sparkling white wine.

But champagne is a very specific sparkling wine made from grapes grown in the Champagne region of France.

Prosecco is similar in that it is a very specific sparkling white wine made from grapes grown primarily in the Veneto area of Italy.

It’s fairly dry and similar to a Brut or a Cava.

  • Chill the limoncello, wine, and soda prior to making these! If you chill everything first, you won’t have to add ice so the drink won’t get watered down.
  • Garnish with lemon slices to make this really pretty.
  • If you are making a batch of these, this recipe is very easy to double, triple, or more to serve to a crowd. I don’t recommend making more than you plan to serve at a time however as the carbonation will go flat.
