3. Sgroppino bar with lemon sorbet, limoncello, vodka and prosecco served with citrus marigold garnish. “This is a classic dish from Italy that a client brought back from a pre-wedding trip. The action of you whisking the sorbet to get it smooth in the copper bowl should be done right in front of the guests and acts like a dinner bell or in this case a “drink bell” to bring the clients in closer for a cool refreshing lemon drink.” – Peter
