How do you maken a Scroppino?
For the Scroppino cocktail we use a lot of lemon sorbet ice-cream (two scoops per glass). This gives the cocktail it’s distinctive full structure and creamy taste. Add 1 part vodka and 2 parts prosecco to the blender and blend them into a light and frothy whole. When you use too much prosecco in the cocktail creamy ice-cream flavour dissapears and the prosecco dominates. That’s something you need to prevent. Serve the Scroppino in a chilled champagne or martini glas. Because of the foam, the champagne glass is my personal favorite to serve the cocktail. Finishing touch, garnish the scroppino with a lemontwist in the glass.
Nice to know: The scroppino has it’s origin in Venice, Italy. Originally in Italy they make the scroppino with a whisk. Nowadays it is easier and quicker to use a blender.
