Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the coast of Amalfi. Also on the islands of Procida, Ischia, and Capri.
Limoncello has become popular in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, where restaurants are now increasingly offering limoncello on their drinks menus.
Limoncello is traditionally served chilled as an after-dinner digestivo, in small chilled ceramic glasses.

A nicely presented bottle of homemade limoncello makes a wonderful gift!
You can use any combination of citrus fruits. Orangecello and limecello are both excellent! I have not tried any combos yet, but orange and lemon 'St Clements' and lemon and lime would both be great!
Thanks to my friend Lisa Wright for the suggestions.
