Iced Tea Italiano

This is a refreshing summer drink recipe and the Prosecco is definitely the key ingredient. Prosecco is becoming more popular as a less expensive substitute for champagne. Although I happen to adore Champagne, I am slowly coming around to the taste of Prosecco.
I made a non-alcoholic version of this recipe using green tea and a little sparkling water. You can also add a few raspberries.


2 ounces amaro (bittersweet Italian liqueur), such as Meletti

1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice

2 ounces chilled Prosecco

1 lemon wheel

Fill a rocks glass with ice. Add the amaro and lemon juice; stir in the Prosecco. Garnish with the wheel.

Bon Appetit!
