Your summer just got a little bubblier! My 3 ingredient Limoncello Lady is tart, dry, and perfect for any afternoon sipping situation.
It’s week 4 of the 3 Ingredient Cocktail series!! This week I am bringing you a bubbly cocktail that is tart and perfect for the afternoon. My Limoncello Lady, of course, is only 3 ingredients but packs quite a punch.
Speaking of punch, this Limoncello Lady makes the perfect punch if you are so inclined. Or you can make just one and enjoy it on the back porch, or by the pool, all by yourself. It is summertime, so if all those kids home from school are driving you crazy, slip off and enjoy one of these lovely ladies all by yourself. In the quiet. And get your peace on.

If you want to enjoy the Limoncello Lady all by yourself then just grab a single glass. I like these stemless martini glasses for this cocktail. Delicate but still a little tarty. The recipe is easy to remember, which is a good thing when you are frazzled from all the summer shenanigans. 1 ounce of limoncello, 2 ounces of lemonade, 3 ounces of prosecco.
Make your own lemonade if you like. Use a powdered mix if that’s what you have on hand. I like a prepared lemonade because it’s easier and you don’t have to defrost cans of concentrate before you get started. I use prepared limeade in my 3 Ingredient Margaritas and I love the ease of it. The sweetness is just the right level for me and my guests.
Now one thing I will say is that you don’t want to use a cheap Prosecco. Just like with wine, cheap usually means a major headache the next morning. Or later in the evening if you are sipping in the afternoon. And chill your prosecco early enough to get it nice and cold. My lemonade is already chilled but my limoncello is not so having a super cold prosecco is a NECESSITY.
If you are making the Limoncello Lady for a party then make sure to keep everything cold before and during serving. To keep it chilly you will need to have a way to keep the punch cold while your guests are drinking without diluting the flavors. I recommend a bag of ice inside the punch or set your serving container in an ice bath.
Don’t forget you can still enjoy my Orange Jubilee, 3 Ingredient Margarita, and the Simple Sangria all summer too. If you are looking for more cocktails, and I know you are, check out my cocktail buddy Christine over at Mid-Life Croissant. She has a prosecco cocktail called the Pas de Deux that will knock your socks off.
The Limoncello Lady is a great way to start the first Friday of the month and get you ready for the second half of summer.
