Classic Sgroppino

Vickie Parks


Sgroppino is a lemon-based Italian cocktail that originated in Sicily. It's pronounced s-gro-PEEN-yoe. It's a simple yet refreshing cocktail consisting of lemon sorbet floating in Prosecco (an Italian sparkling wine) and a splash of lemoncello or lemon-infused vodka and a fresh mint garnish. It's quite refreshing with a sassy, tangy tone.

  • 2 scoop(s)
    lemon sorbet, slightly softened
  • 1 cup
    prosecco (italian sparkling white wine), chilled
  • 2 oz
    lemon-infused vodka or lemoncello (regular vodka works ok, too)
  • 2 sprig(s)
    fresh mint leaves, for garnish (optional)

How to Make Classic Sgroppino


  1. Equally divide sorbet among 2 champagne flutes. If sorbet is too solid, stir it a bit with a cocktail muddler to thin it out a bit (so it releases more flavor).
  2. Divide vodka (or lemoncello) among the 2 flutes.
  3. Top off each flute with Prosecco. Garnish each cocktail with a sprig of fresh mint, and serve immediately.
