One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2014—As Etta James Might Have Said . . .

“At last!” After almost 4 years, my limoncello is finally seeing the light of day. It’s been boxed in the closet since I bottled it before I went to Italy in 2011. Quite frankly, I’d forgotten about it, except for the one bottle I have stashed in the freezer that I sampled once with a friend (it’s pretty potent stuff). My sister-in-law asked me recently whatever happened to it. Well, now that I’ve been reminded of it, my limoncello is going to be given away as Xmas gifts. It’s been awaiting a label all this time and yesterday I designed a hangtag using the shot from yesterday’s blog post (yet to be printed). Because I made this limoncello using Barbara’s Meyer lemons, I thought it was appropriate to feature a few of the latest batch of her Meyer lemons with the limoncello. And, in case anyone wonders whether it’s still good after all this time, I made it with Everclear, 151 proof grain alcohol. I think it stays good forever…or at least it pickles the liver of whomever samples it!
