When I first saw the Gioia Luisa Lemoncello Creme bottle, I knew that something delicious was inside. And I was right.
This liqueur is creamy and sweet with a very pleasant lemon flavor.
The milky mouthfeel lends richness without a heavy or syrupy feeling. Without being too sugary, it gives you a pleasant lemon candy flavor with some alcohol punch.
As with other limoncello, there is no tartness since only the zest of the lemon is used to produce it. Imported from Italy, this is traditional Sorrentine limoncello with cream added. (The liqueur originated in Sorrento.)
Best served very chilled, this makes a great after-dinner drink. It’s very refreshing, and the smooth consistency and lemon flavor would pair well with many desserts and pastries.
This would be a perfect drink for a hot day.
