Limoncello

What is limoncello? Alcohol; non-alcoholic?
I've seen it mentioned many times here, but not what it is.....thanks.

It's a sweet, lemony after-dinner drink, served ice cold. Yes, it's alcoholic... and delicious!

Hi!

Limoncello is sort of like a vodka lemonade and is served as an after dinner drink.

Limoncello is an alcoholic after dinner drink made with lemons most commonly from the Amalfi coast.

I don't know the specific recipe but I believe it is grain alcohol infused with lemons. You sip it from a shot glass. The key is to keep the bottle in the freezer.....makes a big difference in taste.

I noticed that Lemoncello tasted different in each restaurant...it is very yummy....great after dinner drink.

On Princess cruises, they make a wonderful sorbet with it.

It's made by infusing lemon peel in grain alcohol; you mix in a sugar-water syrup later on.

My boyfriend made some not too long ago. Less sweet than the stuff he had back from a business trip to Italy but still too sweet for us. Less sugar in the next batch!
