If you’re unfamiliar with Limoncello, its a wonderful Lemon Liqueur, made in Southern Italy, close to the Amalfi Coast.  It’s about the most popular liqueur in Italy, and is typically served chilled, which makes it a perfect addition to add to a Margarita for a fabulous lemon flavor.  It comes in many different brands, but it’s basically the same ingredients, so you can choose the brand you prefer.  We used  Il Tramonto, made in Italy.
