TikToker Olivia (@oliviaamcdowell) is introducing a drink that’s the ultimate summertime staple. If you’re a lemon lover, you’ll surely enjoy sipping on a glass of Sgroppino!

Sgroppino is an Italian cocktail that calls for just a few key ingredients, including prosecco, limoncello, lemon gelato, and a lemon for garnish.

The illustrious cocktail is delightfully fizzy, lemony, and boozy, making it the perfect drink for celebrations. Its light, fresh taste is also an excellent way to end a filling meal.

Sgroppino dates all the way back to the sixteenth century. Traditionally, it was served to Venice aristocrats after dinner to aid in digestion or as a pleasant palate cleanser between courses.

The drink is now enjoyed as a casual beverage and has maintained its popularity in Italy even today because of its bright, refreshing flavors. Here’s how to make it!

Start by adding a generous scoop of lemon gelato to a glass, followed by a shot of limoncello. Then, add your favorite prosecco and give it a stir. Finally, cut a thin slice of lemon and drop it into the drink.

Make sure to serve Sgroppino in a tall, elegant glass. You can garnish the side of the glass with lemon wedges to add a more festive flair!
