Limoncello is a traditional digestif of southern Italy, where the lemon trees give an abundance of bright, yellow fruit. This drink concentrates the flavor of those fresh golden fruits, making it the perfect palate cleanser after a rich meal.
As the last of the lemons hang like a hundred little lanterns, we pick them into woven baskets and blend them with lavender flowers to make Lemon-Lavender Marmalade. A colorful, elegant tasting marmalade, this end of summer recipe is sure to delight!
Here's how to make limoncello, along with two cocktails that incorporate the liqueur. The process takes at least three months, but the end result is completely worth it. Sweet, potent lemon liqueur that captures the bright, citrus notes.
I need a heavy dose of sunshine, the kind with a beach, a tan & a handsome Italian asking me what I’d like to drink. Sadly, I’ll have to settle for a sunny bottle of homemade limoncello, a southern Italian lemon liqueur.
