Author Notes

I love limoncello, especially home made, especially mine which I make with Buddah's Hand, I love it even more with a bit of bubble... Sadly my Buddah's hand batch is long gone and we've started using store bought limoncello until I get it together to make some more. I've made this as individual cocktails but it works beautifully as a punch, reminding me just ever so slightly of the Sherbert Punch of long ago. I've given the recipe in ratios, so it can be easily expanded. You can lessen the alcohol by subbing half the prosecco with gingerale and doing away with the vodka —Aliwaks
