Sgroppino is a cheap and chic digestive cocktail that will be served to you in Veneto, during large binges, parties, or ceremonies such as weddings where you will remain seated for 10 hours in a row to eat. It is usually served after fish to give some freshness to the palate, but it doesn’t help much digestion since you will ingest other calories, sugars, and alcohol.

The classic Sgroppino recipe is straightforward because it is simply an alcoholic sorbet, usually made with prosecco, a drop of distillate, and a couple of tablespoons of cream to make the drink creamier. So the difference is simple: the sorbet is a granita made of water, sugar, and fruit juice-pulp and/or peel, while the Sgroppino is an alcoholic sorbet.

There are a thousand recipes, but the typical Venetian one is easy and you can do it in a simple blender or with an electric whisk, but if we put in a little effort, we can make some Sgroppinos interesting. And not just a sorbet with alcohol and prosecco.

Let’s start with the basic recipe then we’ll make some variations. Remember one thing: in this “cocktail” the contrast must never be lacking. Ok, if you use a lemon sorbet it is already acidic, but there are also orange, ginger, bergamot sorbets, and a thousand other flavors.

Which spirits to use to make Sgroppino?

Since the taste is often citrus, remember to combine a spirit-liqueur that creates harmony, such as triple sec, Curacao, Grand Marnier, and aurum. Never use vodka, it doesn’t add flavor, just alcohol, and it’s not worth it. Opt for more incisive spirits such as grappa, gin, tequila, and pisco. Let’s use rum, if the sorbet is made with strawberry, but if you use citrus sorbet gin and grappa are unbeatable.

Ingredients and doses to make the real Venetian Sgroppino

6 servings

  • 300 grams of lemon sorbet
  • 15 cl of grappa or gin
  • 10 cl of sparkling prosecco or malvasia
  • 15 cl of liquid cream for desserts

How to make the Venetian Sgroppino

The temperature of the sorbet is fundamental. It must not be too hard. Take it out of the freezer 5 minutes before making the buckskin. Take a spoon and put the sorbet in a blender, add the prosecco or wine of your choice, the cream, and grappa, and blend for 3-4 minutes, until you get a creamy mixture.

Pour into glasses and serve with a lime wedge or a sprig of mint.
