Celebrating National Spritz Day With A Luxardo Limoncello Spritz

Nobody wants heavy drinks on a hot summer’s day. That’s why having a spritz is not only flavourful but also very refreshing. With wonderful timing on the August long weekend, today is National Spritz Day and my choice for this year is a Luxardo Limoncello Spritz. With summer winding down, I want to celebrate it as much as possible and enjoy the last few weeks of it.

A nice Limoncello Spritz tastes like a refreshing dessert and I absolutely love lemon tarts, so it seemed like the perfect accompaniment to the relaxing long weekend.

The Luxardo’s Limoncello Spritz is made with Fiol Prosecco DOC, which added that extra bubbly taste and feeling to compliment the lemon flavour well.

It was such a refreshing and easy drink to make too. This was my first time enjoying a Limoncello-based product as well and I have a feeling it’s going to find its way in my rotation.

Now to why you are here. In a few minutes from now, you will be enjoying the same drink as I did.
