Meeting a friend for an overdue gabfest, I found myself at Tuscan Oven in Norwalk for cocktails.
Just as I was about to order the requisite martini, I spied a cocktail that whispered summer. The Limonata.
If you find yourself in denial about the cool indecisive weather, or perhaps you'd like to be transported to a sunny afternoon on the Amalfi Coast, this Tuscan Oven cocktail may be just the thing.
The Tuscan Oven Limonata
- Vodka (as much as you can spare)
- House made Limoncello
- Club soda
- Sugar/salt rim
Add vodka and limoncello and freshly muddled mint to a shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a glass garnished with a sugared rim. Finish with a splash club soda and serve.
