Over the weekend, I bottled the Limoncello that I made back in August. You can find the recipe and post at this link. This is where we left the story.
So to bottle the liqueur, you only need a few things. The concoction, a sieve, a jug, and a clean bottle. If you want a really clear liqueur you can strain it through coffee filter paper, but I didn’t have any on hand.
Note the fancy bottle. I picked it up for $2 at one of the local op shops!
What did it taste like? Well it was as expected. Liquid Lemony goodness with a kick. Kim had a little shot glass full, felt tiddly, and just loved it.
I think I made her dreams come true. Then I made another batch with the same recipe using an old coffee jar as I could not get a proper seal with the old jar.
Rock on summer days next to the pool, sipping limoncello! This drink is just too good to be true. Made with organic lemons of course, straight from the tree in my very own backyard.
Well I’m sold! This one is going straight on My List! I love the op shop find, it’s a gorgeous bottle.

I am going to make some this week. I didn’t know it was so fast and easy. One of my sons has been living in Italy for over 10 years and I have lots of Lemoncello when we visit.
It must be wonderful to have your own lemon trees. Here in Michigan we grow apple trees and we make hard cider.We also make lots of wine.

The batch i made is fabulous. Everyone who has tasted it loved it. Hopefully i will be getting another batch started soon. I’m now trying to make my own vanilla essence.
