Fresh Lemon sorbet topped with prosecco, cava or champagne. The perfect dessert at your gathering!
And it got the looks too!
Inspired by a classic cocktail made with limoncello (a lemon liqueur) and prosecco (italian sparkling wine). and yes, this lovely dessert doubles up as a cocktail as well.
It is so incredibly simple to make that it almost feels like I’m cheating by calling this a “recipe”. You only need 4 ingredients and a few minutes to create a lovely looking frozen treat.
A few tips on the road…
- You’ll want to use a high-quality sorbet to benefit the best lemon flavors and avoiding artificial taste.
- Choose a dry Prosecco if possible since the sorbet is generally very sweet on its own
- Chill your cocktail glasses in the fridge beforehand if serving outside in warm weather so that your sorbet doesn’t melt as quickly.
- The recipe is simple and allowing you to make all the steps up until pouring the prosecco.
- Of course, you can use non-alcoholic bubbles of your choice
What is Sorbet?
Sorbet, sorbetto in Italian, is a frozen dessert made from sugar-sweetened water flavoured with fruit juice, fruit purée or sometimes even fruit liqueur.
Healthy? Sorbet has less calories than ice cream and other frozen desserts, and no fat. It’s fruit content also makes it rich in vitamin C, however, it is made from sugar-sweetened water. But in this recipe I’m only using a small scoop.
Good to know; Sorbet is completely dairy-free and is a great dessert option for people who are lactose intolerant and want a refreshing treat but can’t have gelato or ice cream.
