I need a heavy dose of sunshine, the kind with a beach, a tan & a handsome Italian asking me what I’d like to drink. Sadly, I’ll have to settle for a sunny bottle of homemade limoncello, a southern Italian lemon liqueur.
If you've ever been to Italy, especially the Amalfi Coast, you've probably had a glass of this sweet, lemony liqueur at the end of a meal. Not only delicious, it is also very easy to make, especially when lemons are in season during the winter.
A symphony of cello's is a post that explains you from A to Z how to make beautiful liqueurs like Bergamocello, Lamponello and Zenzerino yourself. Those unknown little brothers from the famous Limoncello are easy to make, you just need to know how,
I had the pleasure of visiting the Mantova region of northern Italy during one of my business trips. This was the first time I had tried Limoncello and I was hooked. After many attempts to recreate the taste, I've finally settled on this one.
