Limoncello!!

I have found a lot of people have never tried it!! Well, the next time you are buying liquor. Pick up a bottle. Serve it ice cold or over ice. Very refreshing...if you like lemon...

I refreshed my friendship with this Italian treat this weekend.

I love limoncello!!! It's like candy with a kick. I'm so glad you brought this up, Jeff, because I've been neglecting my friendship with this stuff, too! Do you like it ice cold?

duh, I should never try to post with my boys in the room. You already said you like it ice cold.

I had a very good lemontini once at PF Changs (I think) that I just can't figure out.
Would limoncello help? Or would drinking it straight negate the need for the -tini part?
There is a recipe for limoncello in a thread called what to do with lemons / lemon juice today.

Yes, you can make your own if you have the patience to do it... The real Italian stuff is usually better. Here in the US, you generally have one or two types of lemons and I am not sure they are the same varietals as they grow in Italy..
