It's delicious. It's beautiful. It's Italian. It's the Giada.
It's also displayed on a posh, weathered Restoration Hardware-looking table that seems like something Giada would own. This drink is also easy to make, at least while we still lack huge tariffs on imports from Mexico.
I recommend a 12-year Anejo for this recipe. But my ability for form that sentence is as far as my Tequila expertise extends so take that with a grain of salt (pun intended).
A couple of confessions for this post:
1) A fancier mixologist might have photographed a FULL bottle of limoncello, but I'm trying to keep it real here. My well-over-half-drained bottle proves that it's delicious...
2) I would have included Giada's last name in this post somewhere, but I can't spell it.
