While the city is heating up, what's a better time than now to start gearing up for summer cocktails! One of the house favorites is our Sole Di Roma. This bright orange beauty is a perfect party starter and easy to make with just a few main ingredients. The best part? It's light and refreshing, perfect for spring and summer. I happen to love this cocktail because it's perfect for brunch, lunch and cocktail parties.
Now, I won't be able to give out our exact recipe for the Sole Di Roma, but I can tell you what's in it! This is what you'll need:
- Aperol- This is what gives it that gorgeous bright orange color. It's considered Italy's favorite aperitif.
- Limoncello- Another favorite of Italy! Limoncello is slightly sweet and gives a nice rounded citrus flavor
- Orange Juice- The juice serves as the body for the cocktail. I would suggest using freshly squeezed for the best results.
- Prosecco- What would a summer cocktail be without a little Italian Prosecco to top it off! Give it a little splash of bubbles to round it out and make it nice and crisp.
