Lemoncello

Anyone hear of this Lemoncello? What is it used for? Seemed this was only one left so I took it and wanted to find out how to drink it or use it. Thanks.

It's an Italian lemon liqueur. Sip it on the rocks.

ITK, drink a small glass, ice cold, after dinner. It's a nice aperitif.

It is a great after dinner drink. In italy it is normally in a big dispenser on top of the bar. I much prefer it over Grapa.

Keep it in the freezer, and then sip it after dinner as a digestive. It's wonderful.

Laughed

No one thought I was stupid to buy this just because everyone else did? Thank you for your kindness and understanding my ignorance. It sounds good the way you all suggested to do it. Aids digestion? That one is what I need. It does say to either drink cold or just room temp. As long as it doesn't taste like medicine. You people are so knowledgeable. So I can open it w/o being disappointed.

This one sounds tasty!

I've only been around limoncello for a couple of years, but it is tasty!
I like it mixed with grapefruit juice, over ice for a good refresher.

As VeraBlue said put it in the freezer and serve after dinner in a liqueur glass. Absolutely lovely and quite addictive!!!!
