I doubled this recipe. I have 2 quart glass containers in the freezer to give as gifts tomorrow. Plus 2 750 ML bottles for us. Plus whatever we drank while bottling it...LOL This stuff is good and worth the wait...I'm excited to give it out as gifts! I added two limes to mine and a few more lemons, but otherwise followed the directions.
I just finished making up a batch of this for Christmas( and Hanukkah) gifts, and after sampling a small shot last night, I am so glad I chose this recipe! I used meyer lemons and also added a sprig of lavender as suggested in another recipe, as well as the rind of one lime. I think I'll attach a couple of drink ideas on the bottles and make a couple of friends very happy :-). Thanks Mirj!
Someone was asking about limoncello and I went to show them the recipe I use (this one) only to discover I had not reviewed it. So here goes - I have made this recipe a couple of times and I absolutely love it. I have given it as a gift and the recipient loved it as well. You cannot go wrong.
Really good! I've never had Limoncello before, but this really is luscious! Thanks!
So lovely, thank you, Mirj. Everyone loves it, including me.
I love this stuff! My lemon tree was overflowing with lemons, so this is a great way to use a bunch of them. I love to sip on a small glass of this straight from the freezer.
I have been making this for two years now for the the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. The problem is if I make it too eary I drink it all. Try Limoncello and Gin on ice.
I made this for a picnic where I could wow my Italian friends - and boy did everyone love it! Some drank it straight, some put ice in it and sipped it all day, and our bartender for the day mixed the limoncello with a lemon-lime soda that everyone was drinking! I've been asked to make it again, so that's a sure sign it was a hit! Thanks for great recipe!
This is delicious and easy. I made it to have for the holidays, but need to make more because I couldn't wait to give it to my friends! It is a great after dinner cordial.
Needed some limoncello to make a drink, so decided to make it myself - never tasted limoncello before (!) - so can't compare - but loved your limoncello anyway!! Easy to prepare - regret not having made more!! :) Thanks Mirj!
