Well, today I turned somewhere north of thirty. If you remember, I tried using my first crop of limes to make a limoncello. I have tried it with lemons, but never limes.
Only the skin of the fruit is used in the making.
Add the rinds to the strongest grain alcohol on the planet and place in a dark cupboard for weeks or months.
It turned out beautiful. Limoncello, when the syrup is added, turns cloudy, opaque. Not so with the lime one.
This stuff will literally kill you if you drink too much of it, though that would be impossible I think. Surely the liver would fail and the imbiber become comatose before they could drink very much of it. I took one tiny sip and that is it. It almost brought me to my knees. I felt the heat go down my throat and all the way down my esophagus. So much for a little drinky winky on my birthday. Oh my heaven and stars. I am saving this for cough medicine or the flu.
