Sartori di Verona Villa Marzia Limoncello Lemon Liqueur, Italy

I grew up working in the restaurant business in Memphis, Tennessee. The Italian family I worked for made their own Limoncello and it was an honor when I was invited to imbibe upon a tipple. On many occasions where I have worked with Italian chefs, I was treated to their Limoncello. You no longer have to rely on the kindness of your Italian friends. Villa Marzia Limoncello is available for purchase in most U.S. markets now. 

The fine folks at Banfi wines sent me a sample of the Sartori di Verona Villa Marzia Limoncello Lemon Liqueur and I couldn’t be happier. This is one of the most versatile liqueurs you can have in your home bar. You can serve it so many different ways and as a mixer in cocktails there are a myriad of recipes where some extra lemon flavor can make or break the drink.

Making lemon drops with this fine elixir will make you the life of the party. Serving an intermezzo of granita or sorbet during a multicourse meal? Spike it with a little Limoncello to ready your palate for the next course. Making a lemon pound cake reduce your liquid in the recipe and add Villa Marzia Limoncello and everyone will be clamoring to get your recipe.
