Hello, Limoncello

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.

My limoncello buddy, a strapping 31 percent alcohol by volume, lives for the cold. Keep him in the freezer. Pour a little into a glass straight, over ice or mixed into cocktails.

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.

If you’d like to get to know Limoncello di Sonoma, yourself, just take a trip to select Whole Foods, K&L Wine Merchants or Beltramo’s in Menlo Park.

Just don’t be offended that that this friendship does come at a price: about $24.99 per 375ml bottle.
