Say hello to Limoncello
The kids will no doubt enjoy locally produced fresh lemonade, but for mum and dad the Sorrento lemons have something else to offer, and a glass of Limoncello is a great addition to family holidays to Sorrento. This lemony liqueur packs the full flavour of citrus - along with the delicious tartness of the local fruit - into a refreshing sipping shot. It's a grown-up equivalent to lemonade, and not just for night time, as you'll often see locals sipping a glass while the daytime sun beams down on them too.
