simple serving suggestions
They are all tasty as a shot on their own. This allows you to the pure flavours. You could also serve neat, and again enjoy the flavours slowly.
Again, in a glass with ice and topped with soda water will allow you to taste the pure flavour.
getting fancy (recipes are written for one)
I was driving home from work and had the idea of adding thyme to the limoncello;
Pick 2-3 sprigs of thyme and put these in a cocktail shaker. Muddle (I don’t have a proper muddling stick so I just use a pestle)
Add a shot of the limoncello.
And some ice cubes.
Pour into a chilled short glass or a short glass with ice. Top with soda water and a curled lemon peel or 1/8 tsp of lemon zest (a very small amount or you won’t taste the thyme)
This isn’t very fancy. I’ve tried adding a half shot of Campari or white rum but this just takes away from the raspberry flavour. Would work with a tall or short glass.
A shot of raspberry vodka over ice.
Top with soda.
You could also muddle the mint with the shot to gain more mint flavour.
Shake well over ice, and pour into a chilled glass or glass with ice.
I haven’t tried but I think pomegranate seeds as an addition would also work. As would some finger lime pulp – or I like to say – citrus caviar. Pomegranate or finger lime pulp would add little yummy bursts of flavour. Just add before you serve. I will definitely have this when our fruit from these trees has ripened.
