Limoncello Cocktails

Citrus-Based Cocktails Made With Limoncé Lemon Liqueur

Page 1: Cranberry Limoncello Cocktails


Limoncello is an Italian liqueur made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water and sugar. It’s sweet, not sour, because no lemon juice or pulp is used. Limoncello has been enjoyed in Italy for close to a century, and is usually served ice cold after dinner, or in-between courses as a palate cleanser. You can make your own limoncello at home: an easy recipe is to steep lemon peel in vodka for a few weeks, then sweeten it with sugar syrup. A number of brands of limoncello are imported into the United States. We enjoyed these cocktails made with Limoncé brand limoncello (Italy’s best-selling limoncello). Each cocktail is seductively delicious.
