Every year, when Meyer lemons are in season, I make several batches of this limoncello. So there are always a couple of bottles of the fragrant liqueur tucked away in my freezer! And aside from sipping it after dinner from time to time, it often ends up in this glorious Bellini.
I love serving the Bellini for special occasions, but it’s so easy to assemble that it’s a perfect candidate for an impromptu cocktail!
Belle bellini… Cin cin!
