Celebrity Sips - "The RanciPandiTini"

Take one part reality show star, one part celebrity gossip show hostess, add a pinch of bling, a swirl of style, shake it all up, strain into a rocks filled glass-o-love!

When I interviewed Giuliana DePandi, last year, I was struck by her ever so simple “girl next door” vibe. (Pretty cool for someone who has interviewed every major A-lister in Hollywood!) And, the way she gushed when talking about then-boyfriend Bill Rancic (winner of Donald Trump's The Apprentice) ... well, let's just say that it wasn't a surprise when they announced their engagement a few months later. Fast forward a year, and their wedding bells were a-ringing on the island of Capri.

While planning her nuptuals earlier this year, Giuliana asked me about cocktails made with lemoncello, a typically Italian lemon liqueur. After seeing Giuliana mention the recent “gimme gimme word of the day” on E! recently, I couldn't resist creating this cocktail in honor of the blissful couple.
