"Sgroppino"
Lemon Sorbet and Sparkling Wine
As refreshing as lemon sorbet on a hot summer's day and as thirst-quenching as a sparkling wine, sgroppino is a
Venetian dessert that combines both.  Sgroppino is served in a tall glass or wide-mouth goblet in place of, or in
addition to, dessert.  In Venice, your waiter might make sgroppino at your table by beating the sorbet and wine into a
mixture as refreshing as whipped snow. You must whisk the sparkling wine in by hand because a machine will melt
the ingredients.  The ideal wine to use for sgroppino is Venice's fresh and fruity sparkler, Prosecco.  If you cannot
locate it, substitute a light sparkling white wine.  You can easily make sgroppino with a good quality store-bought
lemon sorbet or use our recipe to make homemade lemon sorbet.

wine, make the most of it by pouring it into

slender shape prevents the bubbles from
dissipating too fast,  Hold a flute by the
stem so the wine stays cool.
