Limoncello Champagne Aperitifs

Last Sunday, my husband and I were outside in our backyard reading and relaxing.  It was late in the afternoon, the sun was beaming down on us and we were starting to really feel the heat.  I was heading inside the house to bring out a nice glass of chilled chardonnay when I switched gears and decided to open up a bottle of Korbel’s Chardonnay Champagne (my personal favorite champagne).  Why wait for a special occasion to drink champagne?  I always feel a bit indulgent when I treat myself to champagne but why not celebrate everyday?  The price of Korbel champagnes are reasonable and their quality is superb, so they make it easy!  We’ve been fortunate to have visited Korbel several times when traveling to Sonoma County in California and have always enjoyed ourselves.  They have a beautiful winery nestled between the trees in the Russian River area.  They also have a wonderful restaurant we enjoy for lunch.  We can’t wait to visit again!

As you may remember, I’ve written that my husband makes his own limoncello here at home, so I decided to add a couple tablespoons of the limoncello to our glasses of champagne to create limoncello champagne aperitifs.  The sweetness in the limoncello compliments the champagne and adds a touch of brightness.

 

A perfectly refreshing drink…

**These opinions are my own and Korbel has not asked me or paid me to give a review of their Champagnes.  However, if they decided to send me a few bottles, I’ll gladly accept them :)

INGREDIENTS

2 Champagne flutes

4 Tablespoons Limoncello (homemade or store-bought)

Champagne ( I used Korbel’s Chadonnay Champagne, but use what you prefer)

DIRECTIONS

Place 2 Tablespoons of the limoncello into each champagne flute.  Add the champagne to the flute.
