Cream Limoncello

In my hometown back in the States, we had these amazing neighbours who used to bring us a bottle of this delicious drink every year! It’s fantastic and gives a slightly different festive drink option to the usual (yet still very yummy) Bailey’s! It’s about 3 weeks to Christmas so perfect time to whip up a batch for yourself or one of your lovely neighbours!


Time: About 3 weeks

3-4 Lemons

300 ml, Vodka

200 grams or 1 cup, Caster/Granulated Sugar

200 ml, Whole Milk

100 ml, Double Cream


(Double or triple recipe as needed!)


Zest the lemons, and add to the vodka.

Set aside for 2-3 weeks.

Then combine sugar, milk, and cream to a small sauce pot and, stirring constantly, heat until sugar has dissolved. This will take about 5 minutes.

Let cool completely.

Next, pouring through a fine sieve or tea strainer, add the lemony vodka to your cream mixture, and stir together.

Then, using a funnel, pour drink into festive or spare/clean bottles of your choice!

Let sit in the fridge for 3-5 days.*

Enjoy over ice!


*There may be a small layer of cream on top of the bottle, just break it with a the end of a small spoon or chopstick!
