  3. I have a bottle of Prosecco I have been "saving" for I don't know what, then I stumbled on your great pics on gawker and it all came together. Sounds lovely by the pool this weekend.....

  5. timely post indeed.
    I love a sgroppino.
    I really should try making my own sorbet.
    I made your mozzarella and red pepper bites the other day and they were a BIG success with all the fussy Italians x

  6. Wow! Thanks for introducing me to sgroppino. Sounds like summer in a glass. What do you think of adding some limoncello to the sorbet?

  7. No need for store-bough when you can make it this quickly and deliciously!
    I remember once a waiter was briefly infatuated with me in Italy and he kept bringing me the strongest fennel digestivo... to be polite, I consumed all of it... let's just say I had to stay sitting down for a looooong time!

  9. How refreshing. Using a dairy product would almost bring a "french soda" taste but only much better. This is a drink I would get hooked on.

  10. I don't have an ice cream maker but Trader Joe's has a good lemon sorbet, and I just so happen to have a nice bottle of Prosecco! What a great idea Elaine, sounds so refreshing. p.s. Glad you enjoyed the peaches ;)

    here in Veneto, the sgroppini are a little more frozen-less liquid than what the pictures appear to be. Almost a smoothie-milkshake consistancy. And they go down so smoothly.

    Another very refreshing variety of sgroppino is licorice, made with the addition of "Anima Nera" or some similar liquor.

  14. Thank you for reminding me of one of my favorite ways to enjoy Prosecco! I crave this from time to time and it reminds me of times spent with the family friends who live on Lago di Garda in the summer. But of course, we can make this so easily right at home!

  17. I just go back from a wonderful vacation in Italy. Had this exact drink at da Ignazio, a wonderful trattoria in Venice.. Just made this tonight for some friends and it was delicious. Thanks for helping me create my Italy experience!
