- Mar 2, 2006Greetings, I had to delurk for this one.
Every year for the past three Years, I have made Limoncello.
Unfortunately it turned in to one of the most popular Christmas
gifts from the kitchen (number two only to my wife's "cappuccino
fudge"). Last year I made a half gallon batch, bottled it in 3/8
Liter fancy bottles with fancy labels and wax sealed tops (layered
green and red wax). Long story short, I had to make a second batch
to replace the bottles my wife *procured* for her co-workers.
Yes, a shot of Limoncello in tonic water, or club soda is great (try
a shot of it un-diluted (95%) and unsweetened in seven-up or some
Has anyone used Vanilla? I started macerating 1 bean (scrapped) in
one bottle of 80 proof, add a 1/4 of white sugar, and enjoy. I am
thinking about other spices, herbs and fruits for summer drinks,
mint, strawberries, apples, cinnamon.
