Limoncello Champagne Cocktail Recipe

Happy Hour: Limoncello Champagne Cocktails

When it comes to brunch drinks, there's nothing like a mimosa, but if you have them on a regular basis, for a special occasion, it's nice to change things up. My favorite new libation is this amazing cocktail that combines limoncello with mint, lemon juice, and sparkling wine. There's a little bit of work involved because you puree the mint, lemon peel, and limoncello in a food processor or blender — however, this can be made the day before the party. Although the recipe serves two, it's pretty easy to increase the proportions of the ingredients. I was worried the sugar rim was going to make the beverage too sweet, but it was just right: it's tart, refreshing, springy, and just plain wonderful. To get the recipe, read more.

Notes

Use a sharp vegetable peeler to remove the lemon peel without including the bitter white pith.
