PhotoHunt: Drink

This week's theme is "Drink."

A typical day of drinking in Venice~

Before dinner, enjoy a Spritz (recipe here).

There are several different versions, but the one in the photo contains prosecco wine, fizzy water, and a splash of Campari with lemon rind and a big green olive.


Vino with dinner~


After dinner, and instead of dessert, try a Sgroppino, a Venetian cocktail made of lemon gelato or sorbet, vodka, and prosecco. Tart, sweet, delicious.


Thanks for visiting and have a happy weekend. You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

I must try a Sgroppino! Looks delicious!

Those all sound like drinks that I'd enjoy. Great shots from Venice.


I'd like to try the last one too.

Have a fabulous weekend.

Not heard of Sgroppino either. I must see where I can try it.

A very civilised set of drinks to have with your meal Annie!


Ohhh... they all look lovely Annie! Your photos of Venice continue to tempt... but I think I'll have to leave off visiting for another year as I got sticker shock upon seeing the prices of flights to Europe for this year. :S

Sgroppino sounds delicious! would love to try it.:p


Ahhh, I love your choices for a drink, particularly the dessert one! Happy hunting and happy weekend.

they all look very tempting, great shots for the theme.

Hi Annie, oooh now here's another wonderful reason why I love Venice...a special drink for every meal in the day. I've had vino and prosecco but have not had a spritz and that yummy looking Sgroppino. Definitely trying that on my next trip. Great photos and a very cool take on this week's theme.

Have a great weekend.

All of your drinks look absolutely delicious! Great take on the "drink" theme!


Recipe for sgroppino from Tessa Kiros' "Venezia" (Food and Dreams):
200g lemon ice cream
4 tbspn chilled prosecco
2 tbspn chilled vodka.

Put all ingredients into a blender - whizz - pour into glasses - serve - enjoy!

Bert, thanks for the recipe!

I decided to make them a few years ago and discovered that lemon ice cream is impossible to find in NC, for some reason, and I ended up using lemon sorbet instead. Not quite as good as the ones I had in Venice, but still pretty tasty.

The last one looks like yummy milk!
Happy Saturday!

YUM - I have never developed a love for the spritz but I'll have the second two. -)


I didn't play this week, but I'm enjoying seeing what others came up with. Nice post!!
