Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make these ahead of time?For a large gathering or party, it's best to squeeze a supple of lemon juice beforehand. I use my electric citrus press to make this task quicker and easier, but any sort of citrus juicer will do. Store refrigerated in an airtight container until ready to use.
Can I make a pitcher of lemon shake-ups? Yes. To make for a crowd, combine 2 1/4 cups citrus vodka, 6 ounces limoncello, 6 ounces simple syrup, and 6 ounces lemon juice. Store refrigerated, without ice. When ready to serve pour in a glass over ice and top with 4 ounces soda water.
Do I have to use simple syrup?No. If you don't have simple syrup on hand, 1 tablespoon granulated sugar may be substituted. However, be sure to shake vigorously because sugar will be harder to dissolve than syrup.
