Limoncello is a heavenly concoction made up (of course) by Southern Italians. It's blessedly simple: take the peel off a bunch of lemons, steep them with sugar syrup in a bottle or two of grain liquor for a few months, uncork and drink.
We like ours straight or cut with just a little soda water, but here's a twist: limoncello with tequila.
This recipe comes from Corzo Tequila, like the one in our earlier roundup of basil cocktails with strawberry and lemon. This cocktail would pack quite a punch, we think.
makes 1 serving, but is easily adapted to the pitcher
2 parts CORZO Silver
1 part limoncello
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 teaspoon simple syrup
Shake CORZO Silver, limoncello, lemon juice and simple syrup and pour over ice in a chilled glass.Top with club soda. Garnish with lemon wheel.
