Limoncello Zabaglione



Limoncello Zabaglione is a delicious light dessert that compliments any meal. Just when you thought you couldn’t make zabaglione taste any better along comes Limoncello.

Limoncello is the lemon flavored liquor produced in the Southern part of Italy. True Limoncello is made from the Sorrento lemons grown overlooking the Mediterranean. A chilled shot after dinner is almost as good as any Italian dessert. Not really, but it’s that good.

Yes you could use your own homemade limoncello, but for this dessert recipe I’ll use a high quality limoncello like Caravella or Pallini. You should be able to purchase this liquor at major stores or online.
