Sgroppino was created by the inventive and masterful Venetians in the 16th century. Sgropin, as it is called in the Venetian dialect, means "to untie a little knot", referring to the knot found in one's stomach following a rather large meal. This liquid dessert can also be made with lemon sorbetto rather than lemon gelato.

  • 4 scoops Lemon Gelato
