Cocktail of the Month: Limoncello Citrus Sangria
For this month’s cocktail, we decided to plan with Easter brunch in mind. Few things are made to go with sweet or savory crepes or a pile of waffles quite like white wine sangria in the morning! We offer this Limoncello Citrus Sangria recipe in the daffodil-blossom spirit of those special Pacific Northwest spring mornings. The Vitamin C from the fruit should keep the scurvy away for long distance cruisers, and the minimal prep should be easy for the galley to handle.
• 1 Orange
• 1 Pink Grapefruit
• 2 Lemons
• 750 mL bottle of chilled white wine (Sauvignon Blanc is recommended)
• 1 1/2 cups Limoncello (one can home make limoncello, but it can be complicated)
• 3 cups sparkling water or bubbly
Directions: Slice the orange, grapefruit, and lemons into quarter-inch slices. Combine the white wine, sliced fruits, and Limoncello in a pitcher. Refrigerate or put on ice for at least a few hours. Ideally, the sangria is left to soak overnight. Feel free to garnish with the sliced fruit from the pitcher.
