After a good meal many people like to add a nightcap to the evening and enjoy a delicious alcoholic drink. At this time they are often looking for something with a refreshing flavor that can serve as a tasty treat. The flavor has to be pleasant but not too strong or overpowering. There is an Italian liqueur, called Limoncello that is an ideal treat for these particular after dinner moments and is also a great drink option for other times of day. Usually the drink can be found in the store but many are comfortable making it at home using a Limoncello recipe of their own. This drink is actually the most popular drink in Italy and now we’ve tracked down a recipe of your own to make it at home.

Limoncello offers a delicious taste and a strong lemon flavor. This type of liquor is highly regarded in the southern part of Italy and may be one of the reasons it is so closely tied to lemons. It is made with the zest of the lemon, lemon juice, and is then steeped until the flavor is fully released. The drink is sipped slowly and served chilled. When people purchase premade Limoncello, it has approximately 30-percent alcohol content. Of course, when a Limoncello recipe is made at home, the drink may end up as strong or light as you choose.

While Limoncello is often sipped, it has many other serving alternatives. It may be added to other types of drinks and can be flavored with other ingredients, such as pistachio nuts and even cantaloupe. It has also been flavored with berries, including strawberries, to give it a sweeter taste. Finally, there is also a creamy version of the liquor that can be made to provide you with several more drink options. The author of the guide offers several clever and tasty suggestions for the proper serving size of Limoncello and a bit of history on how the liquor become popular in both Italy and in the United States.
