About Limoncello

A few years ago when Danny DeVito appeared on the TV show "The View" just a bit inebriated, many of us had never even heard of limoncello,especially if you don't drink alcoholic beverages. Since that time though it has become quite a popular liqueur, usually served ice cold in small glasses as Italians' have done in Italy for a very long time.

The ingredients in limoncello  simply contains lemon essence, water,sugar and clear grain alcohol.

Now with that little history lesson aside I would like to share a wonderful recipe that hopefully you"ll love and make over and over again
