I met Toinette, (Antoinette) through our friend Larry whom Toinette was dating. Not only is she a great cook, but she’s fun to be around and a good conversationalist. We used to meet for lunch once or twice a month. And oh, did I mention smart?
She was a college professor at a local college here in central
but took position in another state, so with our busy lives we don't get to see each other like we used too.
I do have a few of Toinette’s recipes, like her Shrimp Salsa, (a fav) but I never got a chance to ask her for her Limoncello recipe. Toinette makes beautiful little bottles of this delicious adult citrus beverage to give out as gifts during the Christmas holidays.
Recently because the weather is finally improving and summer is right around the corner, I started thinking of a drink we could enjoy on hot summer days after a hard sweaty day working in the garden and around our little farm.
Toinette’s Limoncello came to mind so I looked up a few recipes. I plan on mixing my Limoncello with lemonade and serve over ice. Maybe I’ll add a few frozen strawberries or raspberries! Doesn't that just sound like a cool refreshing summer drink? This will also be nice to serve to dinner guests.
