Ambra Spirits, known for crafting some of the finest artisanal liqueurs in Adelaide, brings you a guide to creating the ultimate Limoncello Spritz. Follow these simple steps to elevate your cocktail game and impress your guests with a taste of Italy.

The Ingredients: Simplicity Meets Elegance

To create the perfect Limoncello Spritz, you only need a few quality ingredients:

  • Ambra Limoncello: The star of the show, made from the finest South Australian lemons.
  • Prosecco: Choose a good quality bottle that will complement the robust lemon flavours.
  • Soda Water: To add a bit of fizz without overpowering the other elements.
  • Ice: Preferably cubed, to keep the drink chilled without diluting it too quickly.
  • Lemon Slices or a Twist: For garnish, enhancing the drink’s visual appeal and aroma.

Step-by-Step Guide to the Perfect Limoncello Spritz

1. Chill Your Ingredients Start by ensuring your Ambra Limoncello, Prosecco, and soda water are well-chilled. This step is crucial for serving a refreshing spritz that stays cool longer.

2. Prepare Your Glass Fill a large wine glass or a highball glass with ice cubes to the brim. Chilling the glass beforehand can also prevent the ice from melting too quickly.

3. Mix Your Cocktail Pour 60 ml of Ambra Limoncello over the ice, enveloping the glass with the sweet, citrusy aroma of freshly zested lemons. Add 90 ml of Prosecco to bring a lively, bubbly character to the mix.

4. Top It Off Add a splash of soda water to the glass, which lightens the drink and adds an extra effervescence that makes the spritz wonderfully sippable.

5. Garnish and Serve Garnish with a slice of lemon or a twist to add an extra zing and visual flair. The lemon not only looks great but also complements the drink's citrusy profile.

6. Enjoy Stir gently to mix the layers slightly. Serve immediately and enjoy the crisp, invigorating flavours of your homemade Limoncello Spritz.
