Mint "Limonata" Recipe
San Pellegrino’s citrus-flavored sodas offer real refreshment during the hot summer months, so we decided to re-create the taste of the lemon-flavored Limonata with this cocktail. Yes, limoncello is served most commonly as an after-dinner treat, but try it in this cocktail for a refreshing twist.
What to buy: Caravella limoncello is a nicely balanced version widely available in the States. It’s good for sipping as well as for cooking and making cocktails.
- Crushed ice
- 2 ounces limoncello
- 1 ounce vodka
- 2 ounces soda water
- 2 medium mint leaves, torn in half
- Fill a cocktail shaker with crushed ice and add the limoncello and vodka. Shake to combine.
- Add the soda water and stir to mix in. Pour into a rocks glass and top with the torn mint leaves.
