Thirsty Thursday: Sgroppino (aka A Boozy Sorbet Punch)

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

Sgroppino is a traditional palate-cleansing Italian cocktail versatile enough to be served as an aperitif, with dessert or as a brunch beverage. This cocktail is a slushy mixture of prosecco, vodka and lemon sorbet, with chopped fresh mint as garnish. Flawlessly bubbly and lemony, this four-ingredient mixer’s simplicity and its bright and clean flavors make it an ideal cocktail for summer sipping.

The mixing method is simple: pour chilled prosecco and vodka into glasses, and drop a melty scoop of sweet lemon sorbet to float on top. The sorbet will slowly relax into the fizzy mixture, creating a frothy, chilly punch perfect for enjoying on hot afternoons.

Bottoms up, folks.
