Lemon Gelato with Vodka and Sparkling Wine

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.

  1. Sounds sooooo good! Vodka and I don’t get along, so I’ll probably try this with extra sparkling wine 😛
