Originally an Italian Lemon Liqueur produced in Southern Italy, Limoncello is a smooth, vibrant flavored liquor that is great for gift giving and an occasional treat. Making your own homemade Limoncello is a cinch!


The first time Limoncello graced my lips and taste buds, some friends of ours had brought a bottle to a gathering. We loved the sweet-tart lemon concoction instantly, sparking that insatiable wanderlust! It wasn’t too long after that experience that we traveled to Italy to try it for ourselves.

The shops throughout Sorrento were lined with bottles of various flavors, Limoncello, Orangello, even Melon! The flavors were incredible, as each family holds its own unique recipe, often many generations old.


When we returned home, I was anxious to try my hand at making my own delectable homemade Limoncello to share with all of my friends. The best part is you don’t have to travel to Italy to enjoy the flavor, you can make it at home with this easy recipe!

**Everclear is a brand name of a clear spirit that is bottled at 151 and 190 proof. It’s considerably stronger than vodka, but if you don’t have access to it (like many overseas) or if it’s illegal in your state, you can use high-quality vodka instead.
