Welcome to the essence of la dolce vita. It is Caravella Limoncello, the sensation of Europe, now taking the U.S. by storm. From the long-revered Italian tradition of the classic limoncello, this exquisite liqueur is made from the finest grain spirits infused with the juice and peels of lemons from Italy's sunny southern Amalfi coast.
This clear, pale-yellow spirit combines candied lemon peel with delicate, subtle fresh-herb notes on the nose and palate. Though sweet up front, it finishes clean and fresh, teasing faint hints of celery and tarragon. The producer recommends mixing one part limoncello to three parts vodka for a limontini. - K.N.
