Hello, my citrusy , boozy friend that looks like summer sunshine in a glass.
Have you made the acquaintance of everyone else out there? Allow me to make the introductions.
Everyone: Say “hello” or rather “hellocello” to Limoncello di Sonoma, which landed in my mail box recently as a sample.
This traditional, artisan Italian liqueur is home-grown from Sonoma. It’s made from organic lemons, organic agave syrup, and grappa.
I found him quite bright and smooth, with a noticeable syrupy sweetness that a gal just can’t resist.
Besides an almost creamy-dreamy look, there’s a subtle bitter rind taste, and a moderate burn at the back of the throat to keep things interesting.
Just don’t be offended that that this friendship does come at a price: about $24.99 per 375ml bottle.
