Limoncello is one of those wonderful things that is significantly better when it is home made than store bought. This traditional Italian liquor is delicious when poured over ice cubes and sipped at the end of a long hot day, or sipped straight in the dead of winter, savoring the warm sun flavor. The trick to making good limoncello is patience. The longer you can stand to wait with the lemons infusing in the liquor, the better it will taste. Many Californians prefer to make their limoncello with Meyer lemons, because of their fragrance and sweet flavor, although traditionally it is made with Lisbon lemons in Europe.
