It was my turn to babysit tonight, and on their return from an excited child free trip to Ikea, Gabis husband Burtie forced me to try Limoncello for the first time.
This is a lemon liqueur made only from the zest of lemons mixed and steeped with a pure grain alcohol mixed with a sugar based syrup. Its mainly served as an after dinner digestivo but went down beautifully as a post babysitting tipple. It has the taste of boiled lemon sweets, very slightly bitter with a vague hint of an alcoholic after kick. I staggered home after a few small glasses.
