Amalfitano Vs Sicilian Lemons. Nine out of ten of the lemons in Italy come from Sicily. There is a saying in Sicily that they’re not real lemons unless they are Sicilian. The folks on the Amalfi coast disagree. They claim to be the caretakers of the true lemon, everything else is just yellow fruit.

Can you drink limoncello straight?

A: Yes. Drinking it straight (and straight from the freezer) is by far the most common and preferred way to consume limoncello. Limoncello is considered a digestif (after-dinner drink), thought to aid digestion. I sometimes drink limoncello on the rocks to keep it ice cold for longer once it exits the freezer.

Does Sicilia lemon juice go bad?

As long as the bottle is unopened, the juice will be fine for over a year. Once the bottle is opened, its contents should be fine for at least half a year. Some manufacturers add only a tiny bit of preservatives to their product, so it'll last only a couple of days without going bad: a week, maybe two weeks at most.

Do you drink limoncello like a shot?

I was once with a group of university students in Italy and when the waiter served them limoncello to finish off their meal they drank it like a shot–not the way to do it! Yes, it is served in a small (“shot”) glass, but that is because it's high in alcohol and you don't serve very much.

A greenish lemon does not necessarily mean that it is not yet ripe. You can still have a ripe lemon, even if it looks a little green. This is because lemons ripen from the inside out. The flesh ripens first, then the skin.
