I've really been on a Sparkling kick lately.
It's just so fancy and oh so yummy.
I saw this cocktail on Style Me Pretty early this summer and
knew that it had to be part of my Thirsty Thursday.
(Let me just say, I am obsessed with Style Me Pretty.
I love all of the photos and beautiful ideas.)
Ok, so back to the cocktail.
This cocktail is perfect for a brunch, girl's night, or when you just want to add that little something extra to your day.
It is so fabulous.
Raspberry Basil Limoncello Cocktail
(slightly adapted from Style Me Pretty)
2 lemon wedges
6 basil leaves
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 ounce limoncello
1 ounce vodka
raspberries for garnish
In a shaker, muddle the lemon wedges, basil, raspberries, and sugar until the berries are pureed and the lemon is juiced. Add the limoncello, vodka, and ice. Shake until well blended. Pour juice out of the shaker and spoon out the raspberry puree and basil leaves. (They will sink to the bottom.) Add fresh ice and top with champagne. Garnish with raspberries.
