Sgroppinos : An Italian Frozen Cocktail Ideal for Spring and Summer Parties

  • Sgroppino with lemon sorbet vodka and limoncello cocktail trends for weddings peter callahan catering

    As a cross between a champagne cocktail and a dessert, a Prosecco Sgroppino has a frozen frothy fabulousness to it that is fantastic for Spring and Summer parties. Drizzle a little Limoncello liqueur over it at the end, and it’s even better! At PCC, we like to whisk large batches in an iced copper bowl right in front of party guests at our Sgroppino Bar — the action (and ultimate payoff) always draws a crowd. But be careful you don’t make too many of these fizzy chilled drinks too early or too fast without someone to drink them.  This is a semi-frozen drink that’s best made to order or in small batches.

    Sgroppino Recipe

    • 4 pints lemon sorbet
    • 1 1/2 cups chilled vodka
    • 2 1/4 cups chilled prosecco
    • 3/4 cup limoncello liqueur
    • simple syrup, but only if needed and to taste

    Take the sorbet out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature until it’s soft but not melted, approximately 15-20 minutes.  Scoop the sorbet into a large chilled bowl and pour in your favorite vodka. Briskly whisk the sorbet and vodka together until the mixture is smoothie smooth, and then whisk in the chilled Prosecco.  Taste (yeah, tough job but someone’s gotta do it) and adjust the sweetness with simple syrup, if needed. Divide amongst twelve chilled glasses (I like martini glasses) and finish with a little drizzle of Limoncello liqueur, and serve.
