I don’t do sweet. Now and then I may have a port, or dessert wine, or even a sparkling wine with strawberries. But my palate doesn’t do sugary sweet cocktails. This recipe, is in accordance with that, and for all other adults that are like-minded.
I’m also a purist, or at least I’m striving to be. I believe all of the hype that Limoncello should be from Italy, and with that, it should be from the Villa Massa Limoncello company. (Full disclosure: NO they didn’t send me a bottle but they SHOULD.)
So this is it. I had the brand when we were in Italy two years ago, enjoy sipping it, but wanted more. So when I Googled martini’s, using Limoncello, most called for simple syrup. I left that out. But of course.
My Recipe for a Limoncello Martini
Sans the sweet stuff:
One half a jigger of Villa Massa Limoncello
One full shaker of ice
