What ABV % are you finishing your Limoncello at ?

I aim for around 20%. It preserves the subtle mellow flavours and the sudden hit of alc doesn't blast my contacts off my eye balls. Keeping it a bit lower gives you an opportunity for a second or third glass ...( small )

30% never kept me from a second glass. ;) But the glasses are small all the time. But I get what you are saying.

Edit: Out of curiosity, I checked out the limoncellos at Total Wine and More. Just about all of them were between 25% and 30% ABV.

Another option with stronger limoncello is to cut it with seltzer when serving to make a spritzer. [Or with any ABV limoncello]
