vodka, limoncello and citrus

Postby stixx23 » Sat Feb 14, 2009 2:14 pm

What a combination!

I'll post this in the Good Drinks forum as well...

slaggy and I went to a local restaurant a couple weeks ago and she decided to try some new drinks. One they called a Sticky Wicket, although I've yet to find a drink by that name in any of the mixology websites I've looked at.

The ingredients given by the waitress was muddled ornage and lemon with vodka, limoncello and simple syrup.

I made a pretty close approximation at the house and then decided to refine it a bit to make it less pulpy. here's the recipe:

Ingredients
4 oz. vodka
4 oz. limoncello
2 oz. simple syrup
juice and zest from one lemon and one orange

Makes two good sized drinks.

Using a coarse microplane grater, zest one orange and one lemon. Put the zest in a one-cup measuring cup and pour equal amounts of vodka and limoncello to the one cup line.

Slice the orange and lemon in half. Position a mesh strainer over a measuring cup and, using a wooden reamer, juice the fruit completely. You should get about 3/4 cup of juice.

In a cocktail shaker, put five or six ice cubes, the citrus juice, the liquor strained of the zest and two ounces of simple syrup.

Shake and pour into chilled cocktail glasses.

So does this sound at all familiar to any of the bartenders out there? It's kind of involved, but the taste is definitely worth it!

Looks tasty. How long do you let the zest hang out in the alcohol before straining it off?

I'd say it's probably 15-minutes or so. I zest the fruit and then stick the zest in the alcohol. Then I ream the fruit and put the glasses and shaker in the freezer to chill which takes 10-15 minutes.

May have to make more this weekend to try different marinating times. ;)

I found a link on Wikipedia's entry for limoncello about making your own and may be doing that at some point as well.

I think making some will be this weekend's project.

Our liquor store has everclear in 1.75L bottles for $27. that's about the same price as a .75L bottle of Limoncello, so it's got that working for it!
