Limoncello Blush

2013 Signature Drinks - Limoncello Blush

Limoncello Blush

 

It may sound a bit indulgent, but one of my New Year’s resolutions this year is to serve a signature drink at any get together my husband and I host at our home.  We had a small gathering of friends over for a Memorial Day holiday BBQ today. And though the weather didn’t cooperate, I wanted to serve something fun and fruity to kick off the summer.

I recently changed jobs and a co-worker had given me a bottle of homemade limoncello as a parting gift (so thoughtful!) I thought that this would be the perfect time to break it out to try a new cocktail.  Have you ever tried a Limoncello Blush?  It is pleasantly sweet and has a pretty pink color.  I wouldn’t be able to drink something this sugary all night but it was a great way to start the BBQ.

Here’s how what you need:

  • 1 oz. limoncello
  • 3 oz lemonade
  • 1/2 oz cranberry juice
  • 1/2 oz soda water (we didn’t have any on hand, so I substituted 7up)
  • Garnish with a lemon wedge

Do you have a favorite summer cocktail?
