Prosecco Lemon Slush
This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series It's 5 o'clock somewhere

OK, So I kind of ripped this recipe off from an episode of Bobby Flay I watched recently.  But I was so excited, I had to share it.  It combines 2 of my great loves in life.  Lemons, and prosecco.  What else does a girl need really?

 

I have modified his recipe, because #1, I don’t like mint in my drinks.  And #2, I do not stock lemon flavored vodka at my house- but I do have a big @ss bottle of regular vodka.  I will share with you my recipe, but at the end of this post I will include Bobby’s original recipe as well, if you are so inclined.

 

It is officially called Sgroppino and is a popular italian after dinner drink.  But since I have no idea how to pronounce that, I am renaming it the…

 

PROSECCO LEMON SLUSH

 

1 bottle Prosecco

5 oz vodka

Juice of 1/2 lemon

Lemon Sorbet

Lemon slices for garnish

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

Mix prosecco, vodka and lemon juice in a pitcher.

Put a big scoop of lemon sorbet in each glass, and pour mixture over top of it.

It’s just like the old saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make Sgroppino… I mean, Prosecco Lemon Slush.

Mint sprigs, for garnish
