Limoncello Time

by Steven Doyle

Popular in the citrus-growing regions along Italy’s Amalfi coast for more than a century, the digestif Limoncello makes for the perfect holiday gift. The liqueur is second in popularity only to Campari in Italy, and is a refined and genteel way to end a great meal.
