I'd heard Mario Batali and Giada DeLairentiis singing the praises of limoncello, so when I saw some at Costco I bought it. Of course, Mario and probably Giada have access to time-honored Italian homemade family recipes, if not product, but I have to send out a general query- is it just me, or is limoncello supposed to taste the way Lemon Pledge smells? It was made in Italy, for what that's worth, and ir smells and even looks pretty awful. I'm rarely disappointed in liquor normally. I can't picture putting it in anything I'd want to drink but i'm certainly open to suggestion.
Frankly it smells more like lemongrass than lemon zest.
