The summer of rosé has come to an end but the fall brings new ways to drink pink beyond wine.
Here’s what we’ll be sipping: Pink Limoncello.
It’s the first ever pink take on the Italian lemon liqueur. Pink Limoncello is made by LiDestri Spirits, based in Rochester, New York.
If you’ve never had limoncello before, it tastes like intensely concentrated lemonade but better, because booze. Beyond Pink Limoncello’s taste – the ideal mix of sweet citrus and a touch of tartness – the bottle is so pretty you’ll want to display it.
Sure, you can sip Pink Limoncello chilled or on the rocks but there are so many more ways to enjoy it. It’s delicious in cocktails, and adds a nice pop of color to celebrations. Pink Limoncello is perfect for bridal and baby showers.
Here are some recipes from LiDestri to get you started:
