With the weekend quickly approaching (hallelujah!) I wanted to share the Limoncello Spritzer recipe that I blogged about and then tried recently. The original recipe is from Martha Stewart and I hope to all goodness you won't compare my photograph to hers. Her version looks so clear and bubbly ... perhaps I got a little heavy-handed with the limoncello?!
Regardless, I can assure you that it tasted fizzy, citrusy, and light. I hope you'll give it a try!
Dry white wine, chilled
Fill a glass with ice. Fill glass halfway full with white wine. Pour in a few tablespoons of limoncello. Top with seltzer water. Squeeze in lemon wedge, and stir together.
We brought a bottle of limoncello back from our trip to Sorrento, Italy, but you can pick a bottle up at just about any liquor store!
Forgive the short post; I'm a bit foggy this morning due to the fact that we lost power last night around 8:30 following a big storm. Thank goodness I have a candle obsession. Our dark house has never smelled so heavenly -- lemon in one room, gardenia in another room, clean cotton in yet another. I was sort of on sensory overload and then the heat kicked in. We sleep in what I fondly refer to as an "arctic zone" bedroom -- the thermostat down low, the ceiling fan on high, and an oscillating floor fan going on too. I know, I know: it's overkill. But it works for us! So from lights out around 10 until the power (and all of the lights, and the TV, and the AC) kicked on at 2:30am, I was waking up periodically and not sleeping too well. That cup of coffee was much needed this morning!
One more tidbit - thanks for all of the love on the dress I wore to the wedding this past weekend! I got it two summers ago in Charleston at the Cynthia Rowley store on King Street. It was from the Resort 2011 collection and I'm sad to say I couldn't find any online, but it may be worth checking eBay for from time to time if you are interested!
See you all tomorrow for the Five On Friday link-up!
