Our Italian evening we pulled out all the stops (at least we think so) and used Christopher’s homemade limoncello for both the pre-dinner cocktail and the palate cleanser. The limoncello recipe is from the lovely cookbook Bringing Italy Home by Urusla Ferrigno.
The pre-dinner cocktail is so easy, but so so good. Add about a tablespoon of limoncello in a champagne flute. Fill up with prosecco and enjoy!
Limoncello sorbet, serves 4 as a palate cleanser
285 ml water
200 g caster sugar
100 ml limoncello
1/2 lemon, the juice
Bring sugar and water to the boil and let it boil for 5 minutes. Leave to cool. Mix in the limoncello, taste nad pour into a tupperware box with a lid. Place it in the freezer a day before you need it, so it can set as much as possible. Spoon into bowls or little glasses and squirt with lemon juice. Serve straight away.
