for yochana!!

Make your own...it's yummy but alcohol content is high so beware!
:lol:

From Giada De Laurentils

10 fat lemons
1 (750-ml) bottle vodka
3 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar


Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the lemons in long strips (reserve the lemons for another use). Using a small sharp knife, trim away the white pith from the lemon peels; discard the pith. Place the lemon peels in a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Steep the lemon peels in the vodka for 4 days at room temperature.

Stir the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely. Pour the sugar syrup over the vodka mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the limoncello through a mesh strainer. Discard the peels. Transfer the limoncello to bottles. Seal the bottles and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 month.

Spot on,Linda!!

Lucy,you can buy them indeed at the duty free. I love duty free,but it's always so tough to decide since you can only buy one bottle of hard liquor per passport!

Jo,I have a Bailey's recipe from a lovely Italian lady somewhere,let me dig it up for you!

I used this recipe,Jo.

Except I used vanilla beans in place of vanilla extract.

MUST store in fridge.
