When life gives you lemons...

make Limoncello.

There is no denying that Italians know how to prepare delicious Italian food, but did you know that Italians have a secret for aiding in the digestion of their rich, savory food? After dinner drinks known as digestivos are historically known as palliatives, meant to counter all sorts of ailments and physical imbalances related to digestive discomfort. Though they are no longer sought after for medicinal value, they are still the perfect way to finish a meal.

Limoncello was traditionally served as a digestivo, a disgestive aid after a meal.

Limoncello, an Italian liqueur produced mainly in southern Italy, is one such digestivo. There is debate over the exact origin of the drink, but it is at least one hundred years old. Limoncello is made from lemon zest, grain alcohol, and simple syrup. Limoncello is the second most popular liqueur in Italy and is traditionally served chilled. Limoncello is often noted as having a strong lemon flavor without the sourness or bitterness of lemon juice.

You can try limoncello yourself by purchasing a bottle from Marco. We also sell a raspberry counterpart for those who prefer a berry flavor. Limoncello and raspberry cello are the perfect way to complete a large family meal this holiday season. Bottles sell for $18 for limoncello and $19 for raspberry cello and can be purchased at our Warner Robins and Macon locations.

Did you know that Frank Sinatra was an avid fan of Italian food? Ol’ Blue Eyes was passionate about marinara sauce, eggplant Parmigiana, tiramisu and cheesecake. In honor of his love for everything Italian, Marco will be hosting a Frank Sinatra tribute night featuring live music and some of Sinatra’s favorite dishes.
