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.
