Your Limoncello is now ready to enjoy. However, the longer it sits and "ages" the smoother it becomes. I start my batches in the spring/summer when the lemons are at their best. Then I give it as gifts at Christmas time. Since Limoncello is a favorite warm weather treat it will have aged an entire year by the time most people drink it. VERY smooth and delicious!

The 100ml size bottles make ideal gifts. You should label the bottles with some basic information and a disclaimer (You don't want to be arrested by ATF as a Bootlegger).

I label my bottles and add a decorative tag.

The label I created for my bottles is printed on clear Avery shipping labels (#5165) and has a picture of our house in Umbria.

The label says:

Limoncello di Casa Piazzetta
A homemade Lemon Liqueur Gift To You From Deborah Horn

Here is what I put on my tags:

Serving suggestion:
As an after dinner drink, serve one ounce in a small chilled aperitif glass.
As a refreshing dessert, pour an ounce over a large scoop of shaved ice and garnish with a lemon twist.

Limoncello is best when served directly from the freezer.
