Home-made Crema di Limoncello

Home-made Crema di Limoncello

Today I am back with another one of my favourite home-made liqueur recipes: Crema di Limoncello. We could call it Limoncello’s little brother as this is basically the creamy version of Limoncello, made with cream and milk.  It is smooth, sweet, lemony and simply irresistible! Like Limoncello (see my home-made version here), this liqueur originates from the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula, the coast of Amalfi, and the islands of Procida, Ischia and Capri.  Funny enough, I had it for the first time in Sicily, at my aunt Daniela’s place.  Her mother in law had made a bottle of it and it was amazing!!!  The recipe itself is very easy, but it requires a lot of time as the alcohol needs to rest.  But the result is well worth the wait.  It tastes just like the one you get in Italy!  Have it chilled, after a good meal and enjoy!  Cheers!…
