Buca Di Beppo serves up a refreshing summer martini that will leave you shaken and stirred

Pucker up for the zesty, new Limoncello Martini served only at the Italian restaurant Buca di Beppo. Made with the authentic, original brand of Danny DeVito’s Premium Limoncello this refreshing summer martini is a tangy blend that is new to Buca di Beppo.

Originating in Southern Italy, limoncello is very strong, very sweet, yet very satisfying liquor; traditionally served ice cold as a classic Italian after-dinner drink. Limoncello only uses the zest of the lemon, leaving behind the white inner back of the rind and pith which makes its flavor sweet and not bitter. Made with simple ingredients such as: lemons, vodka, sugar, and water, limoncello is a unique ingredient that diversified Buca di Beppo’s already expansive selection of specialty cocktails.

Buca di Beppo used the classic Italian dessert liquor and turned it into a tangy, smooth martini with a lemony punch. Martini ingredients include:

· 1 ½ oz. Danny DeVito’s Premium Limoncello
· ½ oz. ABSOLUT vodka
· 2 oz. Homemade sour
· Splash of lemon-lime soda

All shaken, strained, with a mint leave garnish, this mouth watering martini will make someone feel as though they escaped to an Italian seaside village on a hot summer day.
