One of Italy's most iconic exports, Limoncello, is a lemon liqueur that hails from the sun-soaked Amalfi Coast and Southern Italy. These beautifully crafted bottles make for elegant and flavorful wedding favors. A personalized label or unique packaging can add a special touch. I've had couples who embraced this idea and still receive messages from their guests about how much they enjoyed it!
