Lemon Digestif

Like an alcoholic Lemonhead, our take on limoncello is both tart and sweet, and is a nice finish to a big meal.

What to buy: We chose Everclear 151 grain alcohol to use in our digestifs; it picks up the flavoring elements much faster than vodka.

This recipe was featured as part of our Make Your Own Digestifs project.
