Limoncello Soda

Time: 5 minutes, plus overnight to freeze (optional). Toast the day with Italian refreshers made with limoncello—a liqueur of lemons and sugar macerated in vodka. For a non-alcoholic version, just use lemon syrup.

  • Yield: Serves 1


  • Ice
  • About 2 tbsp. limoncello*, frozen (optional), or lemon syrup

Fill a highball glass or plastic cup with ice. Pour limoncello or lemon syrup over ice, then stir in club soda. Add a squeeze of lemon juice. Adjust flavors to your liking with more limoncello, syrup, club soda, or fresh lemon.

*Brands of limoncello and lemon syrup vary in sweetness. We tested the recipe with two Western brands: Ventura Limoncello Company's excellent Originale (venturalimoncello.com) and Meyer Lemon Infused Simple Syrup from Sonoma Syrup Co. (sonomasyrup.com).
