Sgroppino al Limone - Frothy Lemon Sorbetto Recipe
Recipe Type: Beverage and Cocktails, Ice Cream
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.
