There were fresh lemons from a friend’s backyard), a bottle of Limoncello and of course there is always vodka. Thought of sprucing up the lazy weekday night by mixing these up into Lime-Limoncello Martinis… It’s a mix of sweet and tangy and it’s pretty refreshing as cocktails go.

These Lime-Limoncello Martinis have a lovely yellow hue to it that, made me happy just by looking at it. Here is the recipe to make this citrus sweet martinis which are nothing but an alcoholic lemonade.

Vodka Cocktail, Limencillo, Alcohol, Mayer Lemon, LimeINGREDIENTS:

  • 1½ oz Vodka.  (I used regular Greygoose Vodka)
  • 1½ oz Limoncello (I used the Pallini brand from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1 Lime juiced
  • 2 tsp simple syrup or use sweetener like Agave
  • Thin lemon slice, for garnishing the glasses

METHOD:
Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice and add vodka, limoncello, lemon juice and simple syrup. Shake well and strain into prepared glass.

NOTE: Limoncello can be made at home. If you have plenty of lemons harvested from your trees, you should definitely give it a try.  For the brave and willing, here is the recipe to make it at home.

Ingredients:

  • 10 lemons
  • 1 liter vodka
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 4 cups water

Method:

  • Zest the lemons, and place zest into a large glass bottle or jar. Pour in vodka. Cover loosely and let infuse for one week at room temperature.
  • After one week, combine sugar and water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil. DO NOT STIR. Boil for 15 minutes. Allow syrup to cool to room temperature.
  • Stir vodka mixture into syrup. Strain into glass bottles, and seal each bottle with a cork. Let mixture age for 2 weeks at room temperature.

I’m scrappy, weird and goofy. I’m a snob when it comes to a LOT of things.., Mainly – coffee, wine and chocolates. I laugh loud and yell louder. I run fast, but walk slow. I love walking long walks with a hot mug of coffee held tight between my hands. I have lonely eyes and a kind heart. I forgive but rarely forget. I remember the silliest of things and forget important matters. I love to run, read, cook and entertain. I draw inspirations from anything and everything aesthetic. There are numerous people who have and still continue to enrich my life in many good ways. I will remain indebted to them – Always. My dad is my biggest fan when it comes to cooking. I could see his eyes light up every time I serve something. My mom’s agility and affectionate nature that reflects on her food is something I’m still trying to master. Travel fascinates me amongst other things. Leave me in Venice and I would get lost in its timeless beauty – The canals. The piazzas. The art. The espresso. Leave me in NYC and I would tirelessly walk the length and breadth of the city (after all, There is always something open 24 hours a day). Through this blog, I am hoping to bring in my passion and love for a few things – Cooking, Travel, Kids, Coffee, Clothes and in the interim learn more myself. Hope I am able to do justice to my PASSION.
