Limoncello is the hometown drink of Sorrento.

Traditionally, limoncello, a lemon flavored liqueur,  is made from the zest of Sorrento lemons. Lemon zest is steeped in rectified spirit (usually grappa or vodka) until the oil is released.  The resulting mixture is combined with sugars or syrup.

It is deliciously sweet!

Traditionally, limoncello is enjoyed as an aperitif (before a meal) or a digestif (after a meal). It is often served chilled and in a small glass.  It is meant to be sipped.   Enjoy!
