Strawberries + Homemade Limoncello = Summer Bliss


 Fresh picked strawberries from the garden with homemade limoncello - a simple dessert that is sheer summer bliss!  This delicious dessert, perfect for a hot night, may have only two ingredients but if you want to make it from scratch you are going to need about 2 weeks.  You can always cheat and buy a fancy bottle of limoncello or limoncino but if you have a little patience you will be great rewarded! 

Here's the no-fail, hands-down best, straight from the Amalfi Coast - Limoncello Recipe!
