I started a batch of Limoncello. If you have never tasted this liquor, it is a delicious after dinner drink with a sweet, lemony flavor. It is to be kept in the freezer and poured icy cold. Made with 45% alcohol, it is dangerously strong and sipping a single shot is enough Limoncello for one night. I will be lucky to have a taste of it before I leave France as it takes about 2 months to finish, but plan on starting a batch as soon as we return to USA so I can be reminded of these fun times while gazing at the magnificent view from my back deck. While I am sad to leave Europe, I am looking forward to all the wonderful things about our hometown, too.
Here is the first day of the steep.
