Sgroppino Cocktail Recipe, Sgroppino al Limone, Frothy Lemon Sorbetto Recipe, Whats Cooking America

This Sgroppino al Limone is a refreshing summer drink from Venice, Italy. What could be more refreshing on a summers day than the tart flavors of lemon.

This is the closest recipe to what the restaurant served on our tour.  The man that makes the sgroppino said that to get the smooth, frothy consistency is to add the vodka slowly, like adding oil to eggs when you make mayonnaise, constant stirring.

Sgroppino al Limone - Frothy Lemon Sorbetto Recipe

Recipe Type: Beverage and Cocktails, Ice Cream
Cuisine: Italian
Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 min


2 cups (16 ounces) good-quality lemon sorbet, softened
2 tablespoons vodka
1/3 cup sparkling wine or Italian Prosecco wine, chilled
Zest of one lemon


Chill 4 champagne flutes.

In a bowl, whisk lemon ice cream until smooth.

Gradually whisk (do not use a blender) in the vodka and sparkling wine or Prosecco. Don’t whisk too much or it will become too liquid. You must whisk the sparkling wine in by hand because a machine will melt the ingredients. You don’t want it too thick, but you don’t want it real thin, either.

Pour mixture into a pitcher and serve immediately in chilled champagne flutes, tall glasses, or goblets.

Sprinkle lemon zest on top. Serve with small spoons.

NOTE: The drinks will separate if left standing.

Makes 4 servings.
