Visions of the Amalfi coast will drift through your head as you sip this delicious version of Limoncello that utilizes both regular and Meyer lemons. Amazingly, it has less added sugar and more depth of flavor. Limoncello makes a splash in a glass of Prosecco, can be frozen as a dreamy frosty sip of summer, or fills your mouth with flavor as an after-dinner liquor. Make several batches to give away this holiday season; but be sure to keep one for yourself.
