Limoncello is the Italian word referring to an intensely lemon-flavored liqueur most famously associated with and produced in Sorrento, the Amalfi coast, and the island of Capri, but also very popular throughout all of Italy.
Limoncello is made from lemon zest (strictly non-treated), water, alcohol, and sugar. It is a beverage usually consumed after meals, but is a perfect drink for every occasion.
Preparation is easy but meticulous: if executed with accuracy, in a bit less than three months, the traditional yellow liquor will be ready to be enjoyed as an aperitif or a digestive, before or after a meal.
As in the best tradition of Italian hospitality, Limoncello was offered to Robert Langdon, the main character in Dan Brown’s Inferno, as well as to his travel companion Sienna Brooks and Dr. Ferris, by the owner of a large boat called the Mendacium, which escorts them to Venice’s Piazza San Marco.
