Limoncello (lee-mon-CHAY-low) is a lemon-flavored liqueur from Italy's Amalfi coast. It's often savored after a meal. Store it in the freezer, and serve over ice. If you have trouble finding it, substitute an orange-flavored liqueur such as Grand Marnier. This recipe earned our Test Kitchens' highest rating.

2 cups hulled fresh strawberries, quartered

How to Make It
Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl; let stand 20 minutes. Gently stir in mint using a rubber spatula.
This is a wonderful recipe! I have prepared this many times (in fact, I'm making it tonight) and everyone loves it. I normally serve it with a little low-fat vanilla yogurt, but ice cream or pound cake would be good too. This is a fresh, light dessert.
This was a great recipe! I served as a dessert for my in-laws at a Mother's day brunch and it went over quite well. I served it with angel food cake and then later had some leftovers with vanilla ice cream. I have to say it was better with the cream, but probably not very light. Will be making this again.
