Sippin’ Limoncello Cocktail

Limoncello Cocktail

While I may not have made my own Limoncello, I brought together a store-bought brand and some vodka in a very cold glass – and they got along quite nicely.  This sipping beverage – sweet, with a bite – was the perfect end of the day treat while making dinner.

As you will see from below, it’s easy.  I wanted to write about it because I think Limoncello doesn’t get enough credit.  Our neighbor introduced it to us awhile back and since then, we always have a bottle in our freezer.  Yes, keep it in the freezer.  If you choose not to mix it with vodka, Limoncello alone is a tasty treat.

For this quick cocktail, I simply take a very cold glass (I don’t want my vodka or limoncello to be lonely, so I always keep a martini glass in the freezer as well), 2 parts limoncello and 1 part vodka. Believe me, it’s all you need.

Mix and enjoy.

Interested in making your own limoncello – check back soon as we may have a recipe to share.  Or, if you’ve made it, share with the Live Pretty audience.  Would love to try it.

This recipe is part of Lemon Week here on Live Pretty following a special online chat we had with Christine of Cook The Story & Katie of Katie’s Cucina.  We talked everything lemons – sharing recipes, tips, taste memories and ideas.  To view our chat click here.
