Limencello Martini

Have you ever sipped Limencello? It was an interesting experience..... that first sip from a shot glass. It was instantly too sour and too sweet all at once. A kinda ying yang thing going on the palate.

From Limoncello

I assure you, it wasn’t a taste where you didn’t want another one though. Second sip – quite pleasing. Delicious!



It called for a cocktail glass and marriage with vodka. Yes. Yes, it did.



3 parts vodka to 1 part limoncello makes a smashing citrusy martini. Beware…..one is where you ought to stop.

However “ought to” is more of a guideline. I’ll have two more of the same.
