If you give a girl an idea…


I had a GREAT idea.

This is how it always begins.

In my June Bon Appetit, they talked about Limoncella…a lemon liquer that is amazing and fairly simple to make.

Once I get curious about something, it is usually a done deal.

This gave me a reason to purchase a lovely giant bottle of vodka, that is so pretty I think I must try infusing vodka with other flavors in that very bottle!

I gathered supplies.

I saw a window of time, and took it!

Only, I couldn’t just start the limoncella (by peeling 16 lemons and putting the peel in the gallon jar with the vodka to sit for many days)…

I had to whip up a batch of spicy pickles, because I needed the jar for the limoncella.

Pickles get a cute new jar!

So we have spicy pickles, we have limoncella ready to go…

But wait!

NOW I have 16 lemons peeled!

Mon dieu!

What to do???

Well, whip up some basil infused lemonade of course!

So I did…which is how I came to have all these jars piling up and waiting for their proper place!

I ran out of energy before I could try making pickled grapes or my carmelized onion goat cheese tart…

Another day!
