Happy Monday, everyone! I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend! It was a wacky weather weekend here in Chicago, with freak rain/thunderstorms that would last 5-20 minutes and then the sun would come out for an hour or so before it would start raining again. Needless to say, I got a good head start on my next book for this Friday and came upon this recipe while reading. It looked so good that I couldn’t help but pass it along. I haven’t made it yet, but it’s definitely on my summer treat list.
Lemon Gelato with Vodka and Sparkling Wine
1/2 pint lemon ice cream or sherbert
4-6 ice cubes
4 ounces vodka
1 cup sparkling wine
shredded zest of 1 lemon
Place the ice cream or sherbert, the ice, vodka, and wine in a blender and whirl until it’s thick, creamy, and barely pourable. Transfer it to iced wineglasses, sprinkle on the lemon zest, and serve with small spoons.
Every Monday is a “Reci-bee” post, where I share my favorite recipes, recipe collections, and cooking and baking hints and tips.
