Cream Limoncello




A few weeks back my blogging pal over at Proud Italian Cook suggested in the comment box for me to use my Meyer Lemon Syrup in making Limoncello. I decided in talking to my good friend Gabi that this would be perfect for her in our belated Christmas gift exchange. She loves it and mentioned a cream limoncello she had in Capri once. So with some Internet research I found the recipe.Can I just say this is some yummy brew. Limomoncello is relatively simple and the Cream version just takes some added steps. The debates out on the length of time required for it brew. All in all I steeped my lemon zest over 1 and half weeks. Added the cream sugar mixture and let it sit for another 1 and half weeks. Tonight I finally decided to bottle it up. Be careful with the straining as the use of milk or cream causes some curdling action. I used Everclear which has a very high proof, but the taste and smell are nonexistent which makes this perfect to showcase the lemons and not mention give you a good buzz!

You did it!!!! It looks absolutely wonderful! You've inspired me to try it, as my bottle is dwindling down.Lucky girl Gabi is, to have a nice friend like you to make this for her. Did you keep some for yourself?? I'll be right over!(ha ha)

YEAH it will give you a buzz!

I want this!

I had Limoncello for the first time, last summer in France, at a cafe. After I was finished drinking it, I could barely stand up. Ha ha.

Proud Itatlian Cook - I have small bottle from the batch! A little of this stuff goes a long way!
Thanks Emiline, Mary,Jenndz,Bellini Valli

Maryann- I'm not sure but I would guess yes. In my research many preffered the use of Everclear as opposed to Vodka.It has a rot gut type reputation and it does have more of a kick.But for things like this its the leader. I plan to use it when I make more alcohol concoctions

Woohoo I've inspired a bunch of people to try the creamy limoncello - no one will be disappointed, I'm sure. Coco, I'm so excited about tasting the brew, I could just pee!

I must admit as soon as I read "Limoncello" I was immediately whisked back to Italy. I'd not heard of creamy limoncello before. Must give it a go.

After having Cream Limoncello tonight at an Italian restaurant here in town (the waiter's mother's recipe) I googled for this on the internet and found your page. I hope to make this recipe soon, this is positively incredible!
