We have a long standing tradition with some friends to get together every weekend and try new cocktails! Most recently, we decided to make a champagne cocktail using Limoncello (which is an Italian lemon liqueur), an orange liqueur, and some bubbly. Our "surprise" was adding the orange liqueur - these certainly snuck up on us quickly! This was a very refreshing cocktail as we enjoyed the beautiful, warm weather!
Note: The Controy is a version of Cointrau purchased in Mexico...
Champagne Limoncello Surprise
Makes 1 drink
1/2 part orange liqueur
1 part Limoncello
To a very cold glass, add orange liqueur and Limoncello. Top with Champagne. Enjoy!
You could certainly sugar the rims and garnish with a lemon peel - we weren't getting too fancy while drinking these, however!
