It's delicious. It's beautiful. It's Italian. It's the Giada.
It's also displayed on a posh, weathered Restoration Hardware-looking table that seems like something Giada would own. This drink is also easy to make, at least while we still lack huge tariffs on imports from Mexico.
I recommend a 12-year Anejo for this recipe. But my ability for form that sentence is as far as my Tequila expertise extends so take that with a grain of salt (pun intended).
A couple of confessions for this post:
1) A fancier mixologist might have photographed a FULL bottle of limoncello, but I'm trying to keep it real here. My well-over-half-drained bottle proves that it's delicious...
2) I would have included Giada's last name in this post somewhere, but I can't spell it.
- 2 oz Tequila
- 1.5 oz Limoncello
- 2 oz Lemon juice
- 2 oz Simple syrup
- Salt, lemon slices (for garnish)
Dip the rim of a margarita glass into simple syrup, then into the salt
Shake all ingredients with ice, pour into prepared glass
Is the simple syrup just for dipping the edge of the glass or does it go into the cocktail as well?Reply
