Anyone who has ever been to my house for dinner knows how it will finish: with a tiny glass of Limoncello. Or at least one tiny glass! This is pretty ubiquitous in Italy, and is made in many areas. My favorite brand, available in most Memphis liquor stores, is Caravella, but none are bad. Keep it in your freezer, and bring it out just before you're ready to serve it. I serve it after the dessert and coffee, but there is nothing that says that you can't serve it with a few crisp little Italian cookies (available, of course, at Mantia's) instead of dessert. It's a little pricey but a bottle goes a long way!
