I think this might be my favorite sparkly dessert as far as looks go and this one would be so much fun for the kiddos with sparkling juice.
Fancy up frozen fruit pops with a splash of Prosecco for a fun and colorful display.
Sgroppinos: An Italian Frozen Cocktail
For this treat you take a ball of frozen lemon sorbet and pour a bit of vodka and limoncello and finish off with prosecco. I could pull of a virgin version by using lemonade with sparkling white grape juice poured over the sorbet.
4 pints lemon sorbet
1 1/2 cups chilled vodka
2 1/4 cups chilled prosecco
3/4 cup limoncello liqueur
simple syrup, but only if needed and to taste
Take the sorbet out of the freezer and let it sit at room temperature until it’s soft but not melted, approximately 15-20 minutes. Scoop the sorbet into a large chilled bowl and pour in your favorite vodka. Briskly whisk the sorbet and vodka together until the mixture is smoothie smooth, and then whisk in the chilled Prosecco. Taste (yeah, tough job but someone’s gotta do it) and adjust the sweetness with simple syrup, if needed. Divide amongst twelve chilled glasses (I like martini glasses) and finish with a little drizzle of Limoncello liqueur, and serve.
