Honeymoon on the Amalfi Coast
Continued (page 2 of 2)
In Italy, eating is a celebration of amore, or at the very least, carnal desire. (That might explain why there's a dish named after the world’s oldest profession: pasta puttanesca—translation, "whore's pasta.") If you're craving something more, well, romantic, scoop up Hotel Caruso's aphrodisiacal oyster-and-caviar blinis. Another zesty option: Top off a two-Michelin-star dinner at Rossellini's (in Palazzo Sasso) with rum-soaked baba served with spiced pineapple.
For liquid lemons with a kick, fill your glass with limoncello and linger at a patio table on the isle of Capri while sipping the coast’s famed liqueur. Those seeking a more serious buzz can order up Palazzo Sasso's wickedly tasty Spicy Strawberry Martini. And nothing beats the 80-proof wallop of grappa, a grape-based spirit, which rivals gelato for flavor options. Salute!
