Public Service Announcement: If you've got a bottle of Phineas' limoncello, Calliope reports that it is ready for drinking.

If you are not in possession of a bottle of this magic elixir, you are in good company. Phineas and I don't even have one. But I think it is safe to say that we will be repeating this experiment, and you may enter your bid early. Bribes are happily accepted.

For those of you lucky enough to have the bottle stashed away, you can drink it like the Italians do - simply pour into an ice-filled cordial glass - or if you don't like your liquor straight, mix 2 parts selzer to one part limoncello and garnish with lemon. However, if you are like me and crave something that will elevate this humble home-brewed hooch into an elegant quaff, then pour 1 ounce of limoncello into a flute, fill with prosecco and garnish with black- or raspberries.

Cin cin!
