Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello Cocktail

Cool, crisp, and light Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello Cocktail is perfectly refreshing for those hot summer days.  Not to mention, it's stunningly beautiful, too!

Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello Cocktail

It seems I've been on a bit of a cocktail kick lately.  In the last few weeks, I've shared a Champagne Cobbler Cocktail, Moscato Bee's Knees Wines Cocktail, and Refreshing Cucumber Gin & Tonic.  But then, I never tire of great cocktails ... and I would bet you don't, either.

I truly have so much fun creating and trying different cocktails, sometimes I think ...
I should be writing a cocktail blog!  I would totally do a second blog focused on cocktails if it wasn't for the fact that I know there's no way in all-holy-heck I could effectively devote the time and energy needed to run two blogs.  {It makes me tired just thinking about it!}

So hopefully you don't mind me sharing a fairly-frequent cocktail with you here on The Kitchen is My Playground ... like this Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello cocktail.  If you do  mind, just humor me and pretend you don't.  Deal?

Now, let's talk a little about this Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello cocktail ...

Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello Cocktail

First off, the flavor combination of lemon from the Limoncello, mint, and raspberry is so cool and crisp.  The-bit-of-bubbles from the sparkling wine adds a fun lightness that makes this Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello cocktail completely refreshing ~  just perfect for enjoying on the porch or patio on hot summer days.

But hey, trust me when I say I certainly wouldn't turn it down in other seasons, as well.

And second, this cocktail is simply stunningly gorgeous.  Don't you think?

I love the way the vibrant red of the raspberries stand out floating against the pale yellow of the Limoncello-sparkling wine mixture ... and then the pops of green mint just add their own little flair to the beautifulness.

So while not all the cocktails I share will be as strikingly pretty as this Sparkling Raspberry-Limoncello cocktail, they will  all be tasty.  Promise.

Stay cool as we head into the summer months, everyone.  And happy summer sipping!
