Limoncello?

Mrbuffer and I won a bottle of Limoncello at the Greater Lowell Chamber dinner. How do you serve it? Over the rocks, straight up or what?

    Hi, we actually make Lemon Z limoncello in New Zealand and we are suggesting to people that yes, you traditionally do drink it straight from the freezer over ice, but also it is a great mixer. New Zealanders and Australians are loving Lemon Z 1part to 3 parts Cranberry juice, Lemon Z splice, 2 parts Lemon Z,2 parts pinapple juice and 1 part coconut cream blended together. Another favourite is 1 part Lemon Z to 3 parts coke.Great summer drinks.Have only just joined Chow so a little late with my reply but hopefully this gives you some more ideas.

      I just made a batch of homemade limoncello and indeed it is a wonderful mixer. I've been using it Sangria. Also a splash livens up iced tea very nicely--beats a regular lemon any day!

      The proper way is straight up and straight out of the freezer. I often pour it into a rocks glass filled with large ice cubes though. How did La Boniche escape your list of favorite restaurants?

            You can also make a Limoncello martini

              Ditto, after dinner.
              My hubby also mixes it with half and half.

                wouldn't it curdle the half and half?

                  He does it as a shot -- you drink it fast. Sort of like an Irish Car Bomb.
                  He usually does it with orangecello, in which case it has the taste of a very alcoholic Creamsicle. :-)

                Keep it in the freezer, serve it up.
