I made Giada's recipe but tweaked it a bit to suit my taste. I cut the sugar in half because I don't like it super sweet and I let it "brew" for two weeks instead of 4 days like she said.
For the packaging, I got these cute bottles from World Market. They have a great selection and even some made especially for Limoncello, but I liked these. I made labels with sticky back canvas and painted using the Random Circle stencil from StencilGirl and lemon yellow paint with white paint through the stencil. I then stamped them for labels, cut out a tag with directions and wrapped some jute around the neck. Voila! A fun holiday gift!
Cheers to all of you! See you in 2014!
