Creamy Crema di Limoncello

Crema di Limoncello. So delicious to drink and so simple to make. After popping up a little snap I took of the mini bottles of Crema di Limoncello I am making for my daughters confirmation as a ‘bomboniera’, I had so many requests for the recipe, I though it would be easier to write a very short blog post with the very simple recipe and method on how to make this little party stopper!

The recipe I have is one my sister in law in Italy gave me many years ago and it works a treat every time. So here you have it.

You will need:

1 litre of alcohol

2 litres of long life full cream milk

1.5 kg sugar

A vanilla pod

5/6 lemons

Peeling the lemons

Peeling the lemons


Peel the rind of the lemons and soak them in the alcohol with the vanilla pod for up to 30 days.

Once the infused alcohol is ready you can prepare your creamy goodness to add to it!

Pop the milk and sugar in a pot and melt the sugar (don’t boil the milk).

Allow it to cool and add the lemon/vanilla infused alcohol.

Bottle and pop it in the freezer.

Yes…it’s that simple! Enjoy

Bottling the liquid gold!
