If you are like us, you have to trade some meaningless gift with your friends at Christmas time. Usually, it's something homemade. After going to Italy last month, I got the idea to make lemoncello. Lemoncello is a popular alcoholic, sweet drink usually sipped after dinner. I've never been into sweet drinks, but, in Italy, we learned to mix it with tonic water or club soda and it makes a really refreshing drink.
Why am I telling you this? Lemoncello is easy to make, but it takes a month of sitting in a bottle, leeching out the lemon flavoring. So, if you are looking for ideas to make your friends and/or family for Christmas, here is an idea. Note that there is a little more than a month before Christmas. Hence, the thread now.
