Limoncello

Posted by Sunny66 (My Page) on

Does anyone know where I can purchase a bottle of this online? I need it shipped to the US. All of the sites I have found only ship to Europe, and I have yet to find it in a liquor store. I guess there is no demand for it here. I've seen recipes that call for seeping lemon pulp in vodka, but I'd rather have a bottle of the real thing. Thanks for any help.

usually on-line retailers have restrictions as to what states they can ship to.

here's one but not sure you could use them. . .

good luck!

Thanks Marie! That is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately, they only ship liquor to California so I am not able to order. I have ordered liquor from other countries with no problems, but maybe there are more restrictions when shipping state to state, who knows. Well, I'll keep looking!

Thanks again for your help. It looks as though they will ship to Washington, so I think it will work! I am going to try to order some today.

I like lemoncello, but am too cheap to pay those prices. Does anyone have a link for a good recipe?

They sell Limoncella in the state (liquor) stores here in PA. They ship natiowide so I believe.

It's in the liquor stores here as well. Maybe you should try some additional stores.

It's hard to find an authentic recipe, because most limons in this country are bought up to make Sprite, but here is a recipe that uses lemons. Note it takes 80-90 days to prepare.

hmmmm I buy it in my liquor store. I did so in MI, and I've done so in CT. And M&D have bought it in OH, and FL. If your liquor store doesn't carry it, I bet they can get it for you.

Spewey - Um, there's no such thing as a "limon". It is Italian for lemon and is pronounced lee-moan. Sprite uses lime and lemon juice and made up "limon" ("lie-man") to describe the taste.

Real limoncello uses lemons from Capri, but lisbon lemons work too. Use a peeler to get the zest off the lemons. Put zest in vodka for 2-3 months, strain out and add sugar syrup. I've made gallons and gallons of this stuff. You can even make it sugar free with liquid Splenda.

they are all there and fun to make! I usually make all the lemon based at one time and when lemons are on sale.
