We hosted a dinner party this past weekend, and in addition to the requisite beer and wine selections, decided to jazz up the festivities with a signature cocktail of the evening with which to welcome our guests. Borrowing an idea from our favorite local watering hole, our friends were greeted at the door with our rendition of a "Ciccone Boom".
Ciccone Boom Cocktail
makes 8 – 10 servings
2 bottles Italian Prosecco or Spanish Cava
1.5 cups Limoncello Liqueur
In a glass pitcher, combine ingredients, and refrigerate 10 minutes before serving. Pour over ice in a rocks glass, and serve with a cocktail straw.
We used a Spanish Cava for ours, and it would be out of this world with homemade limoncello. The ice cuts the sweetness of this drink, and started our party on the perfect note.
