    I made these this weekend and they are delicious. I had to use bottled lemon juice and they were still good. The sugared rim is definitely a nice touch. I will make these again.

    This was supposed to be our pre-dinner drink, but it was still being enjoyed throughout the evening. I used Schloss Biebrich Sekt from Trader Joe's for the champagne. The lemon flavors gave it a pleasant light bitterness. My friend accidently increased the limoncello to 1 ounce instead of 1 Tbsp, no one complained! We are all adding this recipe to our personal cookbooks. If you want to maintain a neat sugar plate, wash/dry your glass or use a new one because the (tiny bit of) leftover beverage will get into your sugar and you'll have a mess and need to get dry sugar.

    I followed the directions, but these did not turn out well and most of the guests did not like them. I was hoping for a light and sparkling drink, but it was too dry and had a heavy alcohol feel (like whiskey). I think we will stick to Limoncello on the rocks!

    These drink are lovely and spring like and perfect for a bridal shower or Easter. Easy to make and very tasty.

    Idk, the presentation was nice but noone wanted seconds. I was wanting something light and sparkly for Easter brunch.

    We all enjoyed, but thought that the limoncello taste was a little overwhelming, even with only the one tablespoon per drink listed in the recipe. Didn't sugar coat the rim, though, and that could have added a hint more sweetness to counteract the rather bitter limoncello. These are refreshing and a nice change from the more usual mimosas, so we will definitely be making them again.

    I did this a little differently. I used Orangecello. I put 1 square of orange rind in the bottom of the glass, crushed the juice out of one section of orange, added 1 Tbl of orangecello, a couple of ice cubes and filled up the glass w/champagne. It was fantastic! All my guests loved the drink. It was fizzy, refreshing, and not too strong. Excellent!
