Limoncello is an Italian staple and is oftentimes enjoyed as a dessert. What is highly underrated about limoncello is using it as part of the sweet component of any cocktail. You could add limoncello to wine spritzes, vodka martinis, mules, or anything that needs a little sugary touch to balance out the citrus.
