Citrus Countdown Cocktail by Emily McCarthy

What more do you need on New Year’s Eve than a bit of bubbly?

Branch outside of the normal bubbles and add in a few of my favorite ingredients!

What you’ll need:

Prosecco (Italy’s version of Champagne)

Limoncello (Store bought or homemade!)

Fresh Basil Leaves

Sugar for rimming the glass (optional)

Optional Sugar Rim:

Dip the edge of your glass in lemon juice and coat with sugar.

Cocktail:

Start by adding 1 ounce (small end of a jigger) of Limoncello to your champagne glass. This can be a loose measurement – you’re welcome to add more or not as much depending on your love for lemons.

Fill the remainder of the glass with Prosecco.

Drop a fresh basil leave into the cocktail – I love how the bubbles latch onto it!
