Strawberry Limoncello Spritzer is the perfect spring and summer cocktail to bring the flavors of the sun into your entertaining. Two of my favorites combined into one delicious and refreshing drink!
Last year my husband and I visited Europe on a river cruise and we had the opportunity to tour many different small towns in Germany and experience different foods and drinks that were amazingly delicious.
One of my very favorites was the Limoncello. Being a lemon lover this was an amazing treat for me and as soon as I had a taste my mind started turning and thinking about all the different cocktails and drinks I could create with it.
In my opinion, strawberries and lemons go together like peanut butter and jelly. They just work. Our Strawberry Lemonade is proof of that(it’s one of our most viewed posts on our site) and I love love love our Strawberry Spritzer recipe so I decided to make a recipe and combine the two together into one fabulous drink.
I usually use Mirassou Moscato in my cocktails, as I really enjoy the flavor of this wine, but I decided to try something different with this drink. One of my other favorite wines is Mirassou Chardonnay because of the intense fruit flavors of peaches and pineapple. I thought the flavor combinations would be really delicious and boy was I right!
How I made Strawberry Limoncello Spritzer
- 1/2 Bottle Mirassou Chardonnay
- 1 Cup Limoncello (we even have a recipe to make this yourself)
- 1 Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Water
- 1 Cup Strawberries
- 2 Cups Lemon Lime Soda (this gives it the spritz)
Start by making a simple syrup with your sugar, water, and strawberries. Bring it all to a boil in a small saucepan. Pour into a pitcher, add the Mirassou Chardonnay, Limoncello and Lemon Lime Soda and mix together. Pour over ice and garnish with lemons and strawberries. Enjoy!
