Chef Talk: Tuscan Oven's Limonata Cocktail

Amy Kundrat

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
  • Mint
  • 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.
