Strawberry Limoncello Sparkler
In my youth, I used to dream about being a professional cocktail shaker. I’d picture myself behind the bar muddling mint and juggling bottles of rum. I wanted to be one of those girls in a tight tank top and cowgirl boots yehawing on top of the bar while pouring shots into the faces of college students. As you can see, my aspirations were high back then.
I no longer dream about dancing on top of a bar while juggling liquor bottles. My dreams are a bit more subdued these days. Now, I prefer to mix up a good cocktail in the comforts of my own home. I may not be on top of a bar, but I still give my booty a good jiggle while I shake up my cocktails. You should give it a try some time; it’s really fun.
When my friend Heidi contacted me about her new line of Not So Simple Syrups, I was ready with my martini glass. Not So Simple Syrup is company dedicated to bringing the art of cocktail shaking into the comforts of your own kitchen. While we all enjoy a night out on the town, sometimes life doesn’t always allow for it. Heidi, the Founder and Chief Taste Tester of Not So Simple Syrup, has you covered and is bringing the bar to you with her unique flavors of simple syrups.
There are no limitations when it comes to creating cocktails. If you can dream it, you can shake it. With flavors like mint, strawberry, lemon, orange, and blackberry, the possibilities are endless.
Not So Simple Syrup prides itself on using high quality ingredients to make their all-natural syrups. Every batch is personally taste tested by Heidi to ensure you’re getting the best syrup every time.
I love a good bottle of bubbly prosecco. It’s slightly dry, slightly sweet, and full of bubbles. As soon as I received my syrup samples, I knew that I was going to make a cocktail using my favorite bottle of bubbly.
I call this cocktail a strawberry limoncello sparkler. It’s tart, sweet, and bubbly.
This cocktail is super easy to make. Add a few frozen strawberries to the bottom of your champagne flute, 1/2 tablespoon of limoncello, and 1 teaspoon of strawberry Not So Simple Syrup. Top with prosecco. That’s it. It’s that simple.
The frozen strawberries look elegant and keep the processo nice and cold while you’re sipping.
