When Mom and Dad temporarily moved in about two weeks ago, a half bottle of commercial limoncello came with them. I'm sipping some now. The homemade stuff is sooooo much better. Smoother, more 'natural' tasting - just much better overall.

Fantastic quantity of Limoncello there! I just recently completed three versions of Limoncello

- Version using Everclear and lemon zest
- Version using 4 dehydrated lemon slices and vodka
- Version using 10 dehydrated lemon slices and vodka

Interesting to hear the feedback so far as it is evenly split. The Everclear version appears to be more traditional and stronger in flavor and ABV. The vodka versions are clearer in color and lighter in flavor but still with a significant lemon flavor.

I also finished a batch of "crabberry-cello" that is amazing. Cranberries with zest of lemon and grapefruit. Few weeks later added zest of lime. This is flying out of my cellar but hoping to retain at least one bottle for Thanksgiving.
