Strawberry Lemonade: Made From Home Grown
A few weeks ago at a charity event, I had the opportunity to sample Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello. Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello is a limoncello created by Chicago’s own CH Distillery & Cocktail Bar. One taste of the sweet, smooth, and creamy sample prompted me to purchase a bottle.
The recipe possibilities for this limoncello is endless. It can stand alone in a glass on ice. Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello can be used in my favorite lemon dessert recipe.
With the weather warming up, I decided to transform my favorite refreshing drink into a refreshing adult cocktail. With agave nectar, fresh strawberries, and Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello, I made strawberry lemonade and frozen strawberry lemonade.
2 tablespoons Agave Nectar
1/2 cup Strawberries (fresh, cleaned, sliced)
1 cup Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello (chilled)
ONECombine agave nectar with strawberries in a bowl and cover. Place bowl in the refrigerator. Allow agave nectar to sweeten strawberries for at least 2 hours.
TWOAdd strawberries to blender. Blend until smooth.
THREEAdd Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello to strawberries in blender.
NOTE:For frozen strawberry lemonade, freeze the sweetened strawberries. Add sweetened frozen strawberries and Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello to blender. Blend well & Enjoy!!
A bottle of Giuliana’s Handmade Limoncello costs $30. This isn’t the cheapest limoncello; but its great taste and rich texture is worth every penny.
Pick up a bottle from CH Distillery & Cocktail Bar at 564 W. Randolph Street located in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood. Or you can visit their website to find a retailer that sells CH spirits.
I have added CH Distillery & Cocktail Bar to my list of stops to visit in the near future.
