Lemon Fresh

Um, you can tell its summer because I seem to be going out more and sipping lots of cool cocktails, which means I’m blogging a whole lot more too. If you’re also looking for ways to beat the heat, try sticking a bottle of limoncello in your freezer. You can make limoncello yourself or pickup a bottle at the liquor store (I prefer Caravella). It’s the perfect sip for balmy summer nights. At Bar Stuzzichini in the Flat Iron District, the bartenders are using it to make the Sgroppino, a fizzy martini made with prosecco, limoncello and sorbetto limone (lemon ice cream). Or, try this one:

1 oz. vanilla vodka
½ oz. Caravella Limoncello
1 1/2 oz. pomegranate juice
squeeze of lime

Place all ingredients into a martini shaker along with several cubes of ice. Shake vigorously, strain into a martini glass and serve immediately. Garnish with a lemon twist.
