I love the flavor of lemon, which explains my purchase several months ago of a bottle of Limoncello.  I've been wondering what kind of cocktail I could make with it and saw this tonight.  Sounds good for the holidays (with a nice big curly lemon twist in it!), and also sounds good for summer, too.  

Citrus Temptation
Makes 1 / Recipe from Food Network, Courtesy of Jill Davie

Raw sugar to rim glass
1-1/2 oz. Limoncello
3/4 oz. orange-flavored vodka (I'd use plain vodka rather than buy this kind)
Juice of 3 lime wedges, approximately 3/4 to 1 oz.
Ice

     Dip a cocktail glass in a saucer of water to rim. Roll glass rim in raw sugar to coat. [If this would be too sweet for you, just skip rimming the glass.] Pour Limoncello and vodka into shaker with ice. Squeeze and add 3 lime wedges into shaker. Shake well.
     Fill cocktail glass with ice. Strain drink into glass.

If I remember, I'll make one of these tomorrow and tell you how it turned out.

Thanks, Artie has been very sick this month.. especially the past week.. I will not go into it because it is too much to post.

He is scheduled for an ultrasound and an appointment with the Internal Medicine Vet, on Thursday...we will hopefully know more then...
