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.
Grapefruit makes amazing liqueur. This grapefruit honey liqueur is sweet, tart and bitter all rolled into one, making it perfect cocktail material. I’ve also included a variation on the Salty Dog cocktail recipe to turn up the grapefruit to 11!
If you've ever been to Italy, especially the Amalfi Coast, you've probably had a glass of this sweet, lemony liqueur at the end of a meal. Not only delicious, it is also very easy to make, especially when lemons are in season during the winter.
