Has anyone tried making their own limoncello? DH accidently knocked the bottle of purchased limoncello we had off of the island, and broke it.....grrrrr. Decided making our own would be a thought. I use it for Ina Garten's berry salad dressing, but a woman with a thick unidentifiable accent said she made 'lemonade' with it.

K,

Yes, Yes, Yes!

Home made Limoncello is easy and delicious. Egullet has the best recipe which was developed by Katie Loeb. Here is the link: Link to eGullet Limoncello forum

Definitely do this...

Most definitely make it yourself. Then get lovely bottles and use it for holiday gifts

The link doesn't work. It takes me to a Weber smoker.

Silver Sage,

The link is fixed to http://forums.egullet.org/index.php?/to ... imoncello/ ; that was embarrassing.

The recipe is on the first page provided by Katie Loeb. There are 15 pages of discussion with great insights by Katie Loeb and others.

One thing you can do is mix it with cream to make limoncello cream, which then is an excellent dessert ingredient. Or with sugar for a cake-soaking syrup for a really lemony cake.

And, of course, you can drink it. Limoncello is one of a large number of "digestivi" which Italians consider essential after the meal. Many Roman restaurants give you a bottle of some digestivo (Limoncello or an herbal liquor) after you're done with dessert, and a shot glass.

I have been mixing it with yogurt, whipped cream, or sugar, and using it to dress berrries, and other fruit! Fantastic. It's my new favorite thing, puts just a bit of tang to the fruit.

Ina Gartens beery salad with limoncello is a favorite, but last night I used one from BA.
