Originally from Sorrento, Italy, a charming sea town on the Amalfi Coast known for it’s narrow windy roads, and beautiful citrus groves.
Limoncello is a digestif made from lemon rinds, alcohol, sugar and water. Although it’s made from lemons it’s sweet not sour, since it’s made from the rinds and not the juice. It’s sipped icy cold (but never with ice) after dinner from small glasses.
Note: If you use Everclear or some other more pure alcohol, dilute it to about 40%, the strength of vodka. Below that, it will not properly extract all the oils from the rinds.
