Sunday, March 25, 2012 bevanda perfetta

I’m anxious to experiment with liquor now and am half tempted to take a class in bartending.

My recent trip to ING’s got me loving Limoncello, especially when they mixed it with Honey Nut Cheerios infused rum. I think that it was one of the best drinks I’ve ever had anywhere ever.

Limoncello is really sweet and ING’s made it taste smooth so I’ll be experimenting over the next month and am thinking Triple Sec and some other ingredients to smooth it out.

Look for some fun warm weather drink posts this spring.

Bon Appetit!

Limoncello Collinse

16 ounces limoncello 
12 ounces vodka
8 ounces fresh lemon juice
24 paper–thin lemon slices
16 ounces chilled club soda
8 mint sprigs

In a pitcher, combine the limoncello, gin and lemon juice. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, at least 2 hours.
Press 3 thin lemon slices against the inside of each of 8 collins glasses. Add ice to the glasses.
Stir the limoncello mixture and pour it into the glasses.
Stir 2 ounces of club soda into each drink and garnish with a mint sprig.
