Surprise cocktail! Limoncello blackberry fizz

Limoncello blackberry

When life give you limoncello, and a bunch of people are coming over, you may find yourself inventing a cocktail.

I had a bottle of prosecco, a bottle of limoncello in the freezer, and also some frozen blackberries I had been putting in smoothies.

Since the people who arrived first were not the people who were in charge of bringing the wine, I had to get with my imagination.  Can’t have your guests getting thirsty!

  • Prosecco (or champagne, cava, or other sparkling white or rosé)
  • Limoncello
  • Frozen blackberries (raspberries would also be lovely; as would strawberries. Slices of lemon would also look pretty)
  • Fresh mint


  • Combine about 80% prosecco to 20% limoncello (the stuff is sweet).  Adjust to taste.
  • Add frozen blackberries as non-diluting ice cubes.
  • Garnish with mint (muddled or otherwise).
  • Serve with pride.

Good thinking, you entertaining superstar you.  Cheers.
