Limoncello is a popular Italian liqueur known for its bright and refreshing lemon flavor. It is made from lemon zest, alcohol, water, and sugar, resulting in a vibrant yellow liqueur with a pronounced citrus aroma.
The process of making Limoncello involves steeping lemon zest in alcohol to extract the citrus oils and flavors. After the steeping process, the mixture is then combined with sugar and water to create the final liqueur.
Limoncello is typically served chilled as a digestif or an aperitif and is well-loved for its tangy and sweet taste. It is commonly enjoyed on its own in small chilled glasses or used as an ingredient in cocktails and desserts.
