This Italian sgroppino (aka Lemon Chill if you don’t do Italian) is a tipsy mixture of lemon ice cream, Prosecco, and vodka swirled together to create a cool, soothing sipper for the summer.
LC Madcap Nightcap Note
This creamy, dreamy, madcap take on a nightcap draws on the cooling comfort of lemony ice cream. Since when was a nightcap only for nighttime?

Scoop the ice cream into a blender. Splash in the Prosecco and vodka and whizz just until the mixture is slushy. Please note, the more alcohol you add, the more liquidy the mixture—not necessarily a bad thing.
Pour the sgroppino into chilled glasses (champagne flutes would be lovely) and serve immediately before it has a chance to melt.
Recipe Testers' Reviews
I used lemon gelato from our local market to make this fresh, citrus-y, bliss of Sgroppino in a glass. The cool, inviting white color of this aperitif is a tingling, tangy, refreshing flavor break from whatever it is that you’re doing. Be careful though: The addictive nature of this sipper can impel one to make more than a single trip to the blender!
