|Limoncello Liqueur, Sorrento|
One hot afternoon in Venice we decided to order some lemonade. Our order arrived as a carafe of water, a bowl of ice cubes, and two glasses of freshly squeezed lemon juice. I mixed my beverage and drank it in small sips but my daughter needed sugar in hers. I guess this version of lemonade is an acquired taste.
By the way, the large fruit seen around the region aren't lemons on steroids they're citrons, or cedri.
And if you can’t get enough of lemons by eating and drinking them, there are plenty of soaps, lotions and candles scented with their fresh, uplifting fragrance. In fact a friend recently gave me a limoncello-scented candle – a much more palatable way to enjoy this lemony liqueur!
