May I Fix You A Cocktail?

It has been seriously hot here in Georgia and on days when the air drips with humidity, a proper cocktail is the perfect way to cool down. My mother and I made this concoction this past weekend and we found it delightful. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do.

Blueberry-Limoncello Cooler

By Giada De Laurentis

1 bottle chilled limoncello
1 cup chilled sparkling water
1 cup fresh blueberries (or frozen if need be)
5 fresh mint sprigs-lightly crushed plus extra for garnish
Crushed ice


In a pitcher, combine the limoncello, sparkling water, blueberries, and mint sprigs.

Fill highball glasses halfway with crushed ice. Pour 1/2 cup of the limoncello mixture over the ice in each glass.

TCH Tip: If using frozen blueberries, add them to the pitcher just before serving.

Garnish with mint sprigs and serve. Cheers!

Limoncello reminds me of my honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast. Love it! Can't wait to try this one.

Hi Pemberley- I too associate limoncello with the Amalfi coast. Whenever I drink the liqueur,I am transported back to a balmy Italian night with my family together on our hotel patio overlooking The Med and everybody raising their glass to the night. It is a fabulous drink!

Hi Turquoise Dairies- oh how I wish that I lived in your part of the world! Homemade limoncello- is there anything better?!
