This Limoncello Spritz Cocktail is a play on a Mojito, a classic cocktail that originates from Havana, Cuba! The origins of this drink are cloudy: some say it was invented in the 1500’s, others claim the 1800’s with the birth of the Bacardi rum company. Its place as an iconic Limoncello cocktail was solidified by the 1930’s when Ernest Hemingway helped to popularize it.
