In Response to Re: What's your Poison:
Since "quitting" diet coke about 11 years ago I drink a carbonated beverage maybe once a month. Water is my beverage of choice. Or an Iced Tea, half sweet and I use real sugar. For the "poison" I like an ice cold Margarita or an Amaretto on the rocks. I have purchased Lemoncello recently and I have used it in several recipes and it is good over ice. I think it is a bit strong and I may mix it with some sparkling water to reduce the alcohol content in a drink and I think it would be more refreshing. Not much of a drinker but do enjoy it once in a while. Not fond of the after effects of "a bit too much". Gale, I just watched a show and they made Lemoncello. Very easy to do but it took a while for it to be ready. Sounded like each family has their own recipe for lemoncello.

My cousin was telling me how she made the lemon and limecello.She zested the fruit (Not sure Zested is a word? She added sugar and the vodka it was hard to concentrate with all the people laughing and playing corn hole She said it took a few months and it is stored in the freezer.I don't drink often due to medications.I really did like the limecello.I think that stuff would be great for a cold WOW STRONG ! But I did like it she gave me a shot and I sipped on it for quite a while.It might be good that we only see each other once in awhile.I might get used to that stuff.I'll call her and ask her exactly how she made it if you are interested I'll post the recipe.
