Lina’s Crema di Limoncello is the perfect accompaniment to dessert.

“It’s a family recipe that came from one of my cousins in the Abruzzo region [of Italy],” says Lynn (Lina) Reisigl, who started Jupiter-based Lina’s Crema di Limoncello in 2013 with her late husband, James, and their son, also James. “We originally made it in my kitchen as a hobby. People loved it and started asking for bottles, and we eventually decided to bring it to market.” Her version uses light cream blended with lemons in a wine base, resulting in a drink with 14 percent alcohol; its smoothness allows it to pair well with both appetizers and desserts. The brand is currently available in restaurants and retail outlets around the state, as well as on the company website, and Reisigl hopes to take the distribution national. “We have a very loyal following,” she says. “Once people taste it, they love it.”
