Limoncello Spritz is a modern, fizzy twist on the traditional Italian digestif. This drink combines the sweetness of limoncello, the sweet lemon liqueur native to southern Italy, with the freshness of Prosecco and sparkling water.

The origins of limoncello date back to the early 19th century in Italy, but it's only recently that the Limoncello Spritz has begun to gain in popularity, taking its place as a popular summer cocktail in bars and terraces around the world.

Prepare your Limoncello Spritz : 


1. Ingredients

  • 30 ml Limoncello
  • 60 ml Prosecco
  • 30 ml sparkling water
  • Ice
  • Lemon slices for garnish
  • Mint leaves for garnish (optional)


2. The ideal cocktail glass for a Limoncello Spritz

The choice of glass is essential to maximise the pleasure of enjoying a Limoncello Spritz. A large cocktail glass, such as the Robusto 55cl, or a ‘balloon’ glass, such as the Mixology 46.5cl, are ideal, as they offer enough space for the cocktail's aromas to develop to the full, while allowing the ice and garnishes to be contained without compromising the volume of the drink.

These glasses also ensure that the Prosecco bubbles are well distributed, accentuating the cocktail's effervescence and light texture. What's more, an elegant glass contributes to the overall aesthetics of the presentation, enhancing the sensory experience of the Limoncello Spritz, making every sip even more enjoyable and festive.

Personalised glasses for restaurants and bars

For restaurants and bars that want to stand out from the crowd, personalised glasses can add a unique touch to the customer experience.

By engraving the establishment's logo or a distinctive design on Limoncello Spritz glasses, bars and restaurants can not only reinforce their brand image but also create a memorable souvenir for customers.

This personalisation can turn a simple cocktail into an integral part of the brand experience, encouraging customers to share their experience on social networks or to return for the quality and attention to detail.

Personalisation using screen or digital printing methods

Digital printing allows great flexibility in design, offering the possibility of printing complex and colourful images. This method is ideal for small quantities and visuals with a wide range of colours.

Screen printing is renowned for its durability, even after repeated washing. This technique is particularly well suited to large-scale orders, as it is more economical for large print runs. Screen printing is excellent for logos and simple graphic designs that use limited colours, making it a popular choice for establishments looking to project a strong, consistent brand image.
