    Whatsamatta you, hey! Lemoncello!

    I have discovered the joys of this delightful Italian import...Italian Lemon Liqoeur..."infused with the rinds of the finest lemons"...32% alcohol...by Toschi..Un Classico Da Sevire Ghiacciato. Pour some over crushed ice...let chill a few minutes...it can't be beat on a hot summer day...but be careful, they go down easy and at 32% the alcohol will kick it soon enough. Yummy

    Try Aqua di Cedro sometime if you get the chance. It's lemoncello's cousin in grappa form. Tasty stuff! I like Nardini's bottling.

    I like dropping a drop of lemoncello into glasses of the Italian sparkling wine called Prosecco. It's like fancy lemonade!

    I can recommend lemoncello poured over certain sherbets.

    I knew someone would ask.

    Well, for this a lemon sherbet is ideal but the white kind, or any light-colored and light-flavored sherbet. This way the tastes complement and do not clash.

    I do find, though, bourbon goes with almost any kind of ice cream!

    Thanks for the advice...I have never had grappa or the particular wine you mentions...but will have to find some...isn't grappa consumed as an after dinner digestive aid? After big plate of mostachiolli and sausages it might really help!

    Is it a "Bailey's" like concoction? Probably very good.

    I've never had it myself. We carry it at the restaurant, but sell mostly regular Lemoncello
