Another Spritz for Spritz Day

the Limoncello Spritz

The cocktail of the summer has arrived! The Limoncello Spritz is a combination of Luxardo’s Limoncello and FIOL Prosecco – lightly combined to offer a taste of Italy – complete with a Luxardo The Original Maraschino Cherry garnish. Try the Limoncello Spritz any time! But, if you’re looking for an occasion to celebrate, try National Spritz Day on August 1, National Prosecco Day on August 13, or National Lemon Juice Day on August 29, 2021. 

Start a summer ritual with the Limoncello Spritz. How? The Limoncello Spritz is aperitivo – a drink to be enjoyed before the meal –and Luxardo Limoncello is a digestif that aids with digestion after the meal. In Italy, folks stay at the table, either after dessert or during dessert, and share a shot of a digestif like limoncello and toast to good health. 

FIOL and Luxardo are two iconic Italian brands. Raise a shot of Luxardo Limoncello and toast to Luxardo for celebrating 200 years and seven generations of family craftsmanship harvesting the marasca cherry. Luxardo Limoncello is the base of the Limoncello Spritz cocktail and is made by infusing alcohol with lemon peels, pulp and juice to enhance the natural aroma and bright citrus taste of lemons harvested in southern Italy. The Luxardo Limoncello used in this cocktail is the same natural and artisanal product first advertised in 1905. It is also GMO-free, kosher and vegan-friendly.

FIOL Prosecco adds the spritz and is made from glera, a grape variety native to the Treviso region of Italy. FIOL is an extra dry sparkling wine that best represents the character of a classic Italian prosecco. FIOL was created by three friends and is meant to be enjoyed with others. Gather your friends and enjoy the brand new Limoncello Spritz cocktail this summer.
