Lemon Meringue Cocktail

Inspired by my fondness of the dessert and having Limoncello in the fridge I gave myself the task of creating this delicious cocktail. Limoncello is such a refreshing liqueur, one of the great tastes I acquired during my travels through Italy.

In Italy, Limoncello is extremely popular and I am glad to say that many stockists and restaurants around the world now sell this zingy liqueur in drink or dessert form.

It is sometimes nice to have something special to offer guests when they are over for festivities such as birthdays or Christmas and I find this drink is good for any special occasion.

It has the zing of lemon yet the creaminess from the sorbet and double cream, along with the taste of biscuit and marshmallow for the sweetness.

Best of all, most of the ingredients are not as elaborate so they are easy to come by, and not at all complicated to make.
