Limoncello update update

We have become addicted to this stuff.  I take a little bottle with me whenever we visit anyone.  My buddy Mike is always running dry, but it’s ok since I’m usually one of the people drinking it.  When you make it, err towards sweet.

Mike made a batch of LimeCello and OrangeCello.  I’m not a fan of the lime, it had an aftertaste I didn’t care for.  The orange version was ok, but not sweet enough.  The lemon – it’s just a winner.  I’ve got another batch brewing under the counter.  This time we squeezed the lemons and put the juice in the fridge.  My wife made lemon squares and a few other treats with the juice.

I just talked myself into a shot.  See ya.

Important note: Make sure you boil the sugar/water before adding it to the mix.  Adding sugar directly to the mix will cause it to be cloudy.  The boiling process is a must.
