Limoncello Ice Cream is a very luscious summer treat which combines freshness and tartness of lemons and a little bitterness of the famous liquor.

My Summer Rituals

Every summer I have a ritual. Nope, I don’t dance around the ritual fire. I just cannot dance. And if I did, that would be extremely dangerous for the surroundings. Nor I sing. I cannot sing. I don’t want to make nice people around me suffer. I don’t paint or carve rocks although making petroglyphs would be a nice skill. I’m horrible at this.
(I’ve read the previous passage over, and I feel so desperate now. I don’t get any decent talent.)
My ritual is simple. I promise to myself to choose and make only 3-5 fantastic ice cream flavors. It’s extremely hard indeed. We love ice cream around here, and any flavor sounds fantastic to me (Well, perhaps except a very few classic flavors.)

Only Fabulous Ice Cream!

Having promised the same last year, I ended up making 6…or 7…or maybe 8 flavors. I stopped counting at some point.
There’s still hope I will succeed this summer. In July I’ve made 3 kinds of ice cream, so there’s still a little room left. This summer that should be the most fabulous flavors.
Something like this Bailey’s Ice Cream (Because everything is better with Irish cream.)

Limoncello Ice Cream

I’m starting my ice cream season off with this luscious Limoncello Ice Cream, and I believe it won’t disappoint you (Because everything is better with Limoncello. Hmm, did I hear this somewhere already?)
It’s quite tart and with a little bitter limoncello kick.
The texture is rather firm; however, keep in mind that thanks to a generous amount of alcohol, this ice cream melts quite fast. Sure you can add a little less of limoncello or…indeed, forget about this option. It’s not an option at all. Melting ice cream won’t stop you from adding a good drizzle of this delicious liquor, will it? We’ll drink this Limoncello Ice Cream if necessary, right?
And you know what? I’m challenging you to have one good ritual this summer: make this Limoncello Ice Cream (Dancing and singing are optional.) And then drizzle it with a little of extra limoncello. Because why not!

    I think a ritual of making fabulous ice cream for summer is a pretty great one! Although I’m not sure you should limit yourself to 3-5 flavors. I say gimme all the ice cream ALL summer long in ALL the flavors! lol. LOVE this one, Ben!! Limoncello is so delicious, but IN some ice cream?! GAH! YESSSSSS! I’m going to need a few gallons of this immediately! ;) Cheers, buddy!

    I love limoncello! But the funny thing is I rarely pull it out and pour a glass. (I clearly need to fix that.) But first, I think I need to pull it out and make this ice cream…it sounds incredible! And your talent is clearly making amazing ice cream. That, and using lavender in recipes. :-) Hope you’re having a great weekend, Ben!
