Healthier Homemade Limoncello
Limoncello (pronounced: lee-mohn-cheh-loh) is an Italian lemon liqueur that is served chilled, often as a palate cleanser or an after-dinner drink. However, did you know that most storebought versions aren’t 100% natural? I know, it’s terrible, right? Because Limoncello is pretty much the best-tasting liqueur out there, but it oftentimes contains artificial food coloring, a TON of refined sugar and sometimes even preservatives! But not anymore, because I just made an all-natural homemade version 🙂
I’ll let you in on another secret too… compared to storebought Limoncello, this DIY recipe is lower calorie, gluten free and contains no refined white sugar… and it tastes ahhhmazing.
^^ Healthier Homemade Limoncello in the making!
This bottle will sit in the fridge for twelve days to “steep,” and soon enough, you will be pouring this liquid gold into glasses and
chugging sipping on its amazingness.
Twelve days might seem like a long time, but it is SO worth it. Trust me 😉
I am not sure if the specific type of Smirnoff used in this recipe is vegan, however the majority of their flavors are indeed vegan friendly 🙂
What?! My version has just ONE QUARTER the calories of regular Limoncello?! Not to mention, zero sugar. Oh yes, I will have another shot please.
If you start a batch of this Homemade Limoncello now, it will be ready by Thanksgiving. Better yet, it will be in perfect condition for the winter holidays!
But really now, you should just start a batch for yourself… you know, for when you need it 😉 Bottoms up!
