Best if served from the freezer or chilled.

The one that started it all! Classic Italian liqueur with a robust lemon flavor and higher alcohol content. Every lemon that goes into our limoncello has been carefully hand-zested. Compares to any authentic  limoncello you’ve tasted in Italy! Best if stored in and served from the freezer. Our flagship, classy lady.

Zesty Mountaineer Martini
West Virginia’s Smooth Ambler Vodka, flavored to taste with our Limoncello. Shake with ice and garnish with a lemon twist.

Tuscan Passion
A nice sweet martini, just like a glass of magic! Sugar-rim a fancy glass and chill. Shake together with ice, equal parts SweetShine Limoncello, Hard Lemonade and passion fruit vodka. Strain, pour, enjoy!

Named for what we most commonly hear in our tasting room after a spoonful. This is a simple palate cleanser or dessert treat. We like Ciao Bella brand sorbet. Just a scoop of passion fruit sorbet drizzled with SweetShine Limoncello and stirred together. For larger servings, a pint of sorbet and about two ounces of Limoncello. Mango, peach and lemon sorbets are also nice. Experiment and PLAY!

Sassy Margarita
Add a touch of our SweetShine Limoncello to your favorite margarita recipe and feel your taste buds sweetly smile. We love using 1 part FRESH lime juice, 1 part SweetShine Limoncello and 1½ parts 100% agave tequila. Now THAT’s a Sassy Margarita!

Tangy Slushy
In a standard blender about half full of ice, add one bottle of Hard Lemonade and about a third of a bottle of either Limoncello or Raspberry Lemon. Press the appropriate button, pour and sip. Remember to put the lid on the blender BEFORE pressing the button!
