Okay, so here at New York Wine Events, we sometimes occasionally drink things that aren’t wine. Obviously, wine is our number one choice but sometimes a moment calls for something with a bit more punch or just that little something extra. When those times come, we like to turn to our friend limoncello.
Never heard of it? Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur that is made by steeping lemon zest in a strong spirit like grappa or vodka until the oils are released, at which time they are mixed with a simple syrup. It comes out as this tangy, sweet but tart little beverage that is fantastic for sipping on a warm night or mixing into delicious cocktails.
We’re all about well-crafted cocktails so here are three of our favorites for you:
Limoncello Gin Cocktail: Created by The Kitchn
Raspberry Basil Limoncello Cocktail Created by Bobby Flay
Limoncello Vodka Collins: Created by the Barefoot Contessa
What’s better than great wine and artisanal pizza?
The New York Times described Ridge Monte Bello as “America’s greatest Cabernet Sauvignon.”
