Mixology Monday V: Limoncello Cooler

What can I say, after hearing your comments on Limoncello in my post for the Lemon Sorbet I thought I'd treat you to another Limoncello pleasure. It was also a fantastic idea from JD over at Jiggle the Handle to choose lemons for the theme of the next Mixology Monday.

That bottle of Limoncello from Italy did not last very long and I was able to use the last for a few summery Limoncello coolers over the weekend.

Soeren was at his grandparents and we had the whole place to ourselves so in the afternoon we crashed in our backyard with our neighbors and we whipped up some real cooling mixtures. This was my mixture. A great light and very refreshing drink for the summer and a brilliant alternative to the Lemonade ;-). Hey I did say the kid was out of town, OK!

The best thing is, it's easy and won't keep you away from the hammock for too long!


Juice of half a lemon
2 cl Limoncello
Chilled aerated water like Perrier
Ice cubes

In a long glass place a few ice cubes. Add the Limoncello, lemon juice and top off with the water.


Phew, that was refreshing! Anyone for seconds?

  1. Mmmm, I love lemoncello

  2. I have a lot of Limoncello over here, why don't you bring the Perrier??

  3. Isn't that funny I just had a limoncello night! We made basically what you did which were really good but later got hooked on a martini version.

    To make them:
    Mix one shot of limoncello, a couple of mint leaves and a good squeeze of lime. Super cold. The mint is super tasty after it has been sitting in the limoncello.

  4. I love that first photograph, Meeta. Well, it's less of a snap and more of art. Really.

  5. I have a bottle of limoncello in my fridge - now I have a pretty good idea of something else to make with it!
