A few days ago, Flavorful World was invited by award-winning winemaker VOGA Italia to participate in its #VogaMIXinStyle wine cocktail contest celebrating May 25th as National Wine Day. Having long admired VOGA’s winemaking style and quality, and because cocktail recipes are the very next place after grilling/BBQ that my mind tends to go to during the warmer months of the year, I accepted the invitation with enthusiasm.
To assist my creation process, VOGA Italia supplied me with three FREE bottles of its most popular wines: VOGA Dolce Rosso, VOGA Sparkling, and VOGA Pinot Grigio. And after many exercises in pouring and sipping over the courses of multiple days, my entry I present below: The VOGA Biscotti Limone – a sparkling cocktail whose flavor combination I hope will channel the vibrant spirit of Italy in every sip.
VOGA Biscotti Limone
- 4 oz. chilled VOGA Sparkling
- 0.25 oz. cold Sicilian lemon juice
- 1 oz. Italian Biscotti Liqueur
- Splash of chilled Limoncello
Directions: Add lemon juice, biscotti liqueur, and splash of Limoncello to chilled glass. Slowly pour in VOGA Sparkling and enjoy.
*Optional: Garnish finished cocktail with lemon peel, or before adding ingredients to glass, moisten glass rim with biscotti liqueur, then rim with crushed biscotti pieces.
If this cocktail sounds like a li’l glass of good times, please consider tossing it a “Like” and/or “Share” on VOGA’s Facebook page!
