One of the many wonderful things about limoncello is its versatility. Just as the flavor of lemon improves so many food dishes, the same is true of beverages. Limoncello can be added to a wide variety of drinks to alter and improve their flavor. That is what we’ve done here.
This is the official compendium of all the original drink recipes developed by LimoncelloQuest over the years. Are they all completely new—baring no resemblance to any other drink? No, definitely not. In some cases that’s true, but in many cases I’m riffing on an existing drink to improve it for my palate. Below is the master list and there are some useful breakdowns below.
If you’re reading this, you’re probably a limoncello sort of person. But you probably have other beverage preferences as well. Some folks enjoy the lighter nature of wine-based cocktails while many others prefer heavier and less sweet concoctions with bourbon or gin. Pretty much no matter what you prefer in your limoncello drinks, we’ve got you covered. We’ve divided our recipes into groups by the other main liquor ingredient for your convenience.
If all you wanted was a drink recipe to use tonight, then you probably didn’t read this far. But we have many DIY-type readers who like to make their own limoncello and experiment with flavors like I do.
If you want to alter our limoncello drink recipes and you stumble onto something amazing, tell me! I’d love to feature your drink in our gallery. We’ll make it, take a beautiful picture of it and of course let you name it. Then I’ll taste it and do a write-up on it that may or may not contain funny jokes.
I’d love to hear about your creations.
