Thank you to Limoncello Di Capri for sponsoring this post. We received this product for review, all opinions expressed are our own.
It is approximately half passed two in the morning as I begin writing this post. As my day drags into the early hours, it seems that no sooner do I cross one item off the now previous day’s to-do list than a new task arises, and, of course, that task must be promptly and skillfully dealt with – lest my entire world will be torn asunder…or so I have convinced myself.
However, as I sit here typing to the haphazard rhythm of an achingly – and regretfully – caffeinated half-sleep, with New York’s own Joe Bonamassa easing my nerves to Sloe Gin, I find myself reflecting on a wintery season that has become pleasantly busy, and warmly festive. Multiple rounds of home brewed cider, trays of comically rotund gingerbread fellows, and peppermint topped chocolate loaves have all taken their turn in our spotlight, each lovingly etching their images into this season’s collective memory.
That said, our latest and less than traditional addition to the holiday menu is a rich, vanilla ice cream. No, not even the biting cold of late December in New York can dampen our appetite for frozen dairy, provided it has been sweetened and flavored to decadent perfection. Icy temperatures be damned.
And so it was that upon receiving a bottle of Limoncello di Capri for sampling, what better first use than to top it over the aforementioned ice cream? While Limoncello is more commonly imbibed as a mixer to champagne or tonic water, its smooth texture and unrelenting lemon-lime flavor contrasted exquisitely with the vanilla infused ice cream.
Handcrafted from IGP certified lemons grown on the island of Capri and the Sorrento peninsula, Limoncello di Capri has forged a reputation for itself that has seen it become the number one selling Limoncello in Italy. That said, it has made a perfect addition to our growing collection of quality spirits.
