Lemon sgroppino with strawberries

Lemon sgroppino with strawberries

Sgroppino is a drink from Italy's Veneto region. Nowadays it's more of an apéritif, but here, Diana Henry uses it as a dessert.

  • ½ x 75cl bottle Prosecco or sparkling white wine, chilled
  • 8 small strawberries
  • 4 tbsp lemon sorbet, plus more to add at the table, if liked


  1. Half-fill 4 tall Champagne glasses with Prosecco. The sorbet makes the Prosecco froth, so don’t add any more at this stage. If the strawberries are small, put them into the drinks whole. If they’re a bit bigger, hull and slice them. Add them to the glasses.

  2. Drop a spoonful of lemon sorbet into each glass – don’t make it too big. Top up the glasses with more Prosecco. You can add more lemon sorbet at the table if people want it.

Cook’s tip

I’ve taken liberties here, as it is supposed to contain vodka and the whole drink – minus any fruit – should be whizzed in a blender. I like to see the strawberries floating below the sorbet, and let the sorbet gradually melt.
