Directions

To make the simple syrup: In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup of water with 1/2 cup of sugar over medium heat. Bring to a boil and stir until all the sugar is dissolved. Take pan off heat and set aside to cool.

For the sugar rims: In a shallow bowl, combine 1/4 cup of sugar with the lemon and lime zest. Rub the lemon around the glass rim, making sure to evenly coat both inside and out. Lightly press the rim into the sugar to frost.

In a small pitcher, combine the Prosecco, amaretto liqueur, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons of cooled simple syrup. Pour into the sugared glass over ice.

Garnish with a slice of lemon and a slice of lime.

    I made this for a Valentine's Party, and it was a big hit with all the guests. It is very refreshing. I increased the ingredients x5 and used an entire bottle of Prosecco instead of making individual drinks. There is no need to increase the amount of sugar and lemon lime for the glass rims. I doubled that part and only used a fraction of it.

    I made this recipe for a family gathering on a warm spring day. My guests found it to be refreshing. The lemon-lime/sugar coating on the rims of the glasses made for a pretty presentation.
