I'm very particular about my Limoncello," Danny DeVito says.
"The balance has to be right. If it's too sweet, it tastes like a lemon drop. If it's too tart, then it's not right for me either - I guess I'm just like Goldilocks," he adds, laughing.
DeVito's limoncello is made with lemons from Sorrento and is the only brand awarded an IGP designation, Italy's prestigious mark of authenticity. The secret to perfect limoncello lies in the zest of prized, highly scented Sorrento lemons and their essential oils. Neither pith nor juice is ever used. "Just the smallest part of the white can make the limoncello sour," says DeVito, who spent years perfecting his favorite liqueur.
