I think ejs4y8 it’s best for you maybe to try it first before you start making batches. I say give it a shot!

I think either it’ll work great or else the natural and artificial flavors would clash oddly.  I vote for doing a trial run somehow, even if you have to mock it up, or else just going with straight lemon and attempting the raspberry at another time. 

Clever idea though!

You could give it a try, but the flavored vodka might not make a big difference. Most of what I’ve read about making limoncello instructs you to use 100 proof vodka anyway, which is different from the regular, flavored stuff. If you want to flavor it, you may also try using a flavored recipe. You can search for "Mellocello" which has vanilla.

My FI’s family usually makes limoncello and I was looking for way to surprise him with some — but of course there really isn’t a way to make a much smaller recipe! I think the flavored vodka won’t be bad, but it might not be noticeable with the lemon flavor.

I wouldn’t just use any fruit flavor, think of flavors that have already been mixed with lemon and came out well in other desserts/drinks ie.  lemon goes great with blueberry.

Ok just looked it up.  Love the idea, how would you bottle it up as favors? Mini jars? I want to make some, can any type of fruit be used?

Good idea scaling it down.  If it doesnt work you can always just make some frozen drinks the day of…. I know at work we always try to make up new drinks when we are bored, some are great, but some alhohols just dont mix.  We have gotten rasberry vodka to mix with some things and turn out like skittles…

Here’s my recipe…

 

Grated zest of 20 lemons 

Grated zest of 2 large oranges

1 bottle {750ml} 190 clear grain alcohol

6 oz. Grey Goose L’Orange Vodka

4 cups Simple Syrup-{sugar syrup}

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large glass jar and store in a cool, dark place for 7-10 days. Strain alcohol mixture into another jar and add simple syrup. Stir. Will keep in the fridge for weeks.

 

So good! I like to add 1 oz. to a class of Prosecco or  combine 1 oz. Limoncello, 1 oz. citron vodka and a little bit of lemonade…voila~Cellotini! 🙂

Sounds like it could be fun, but will you have anything there for non-drinkers? My fiance and I don’t drink, and there will be a couple AA family members at our wedding…that and kids of course! Maybe some cookies or something so other people aren’t left out? That and out of my friends that do drink, definitely not all of them like limoncello – I don’t think it’s a universal favorite (although when I was in Sorrento it certainly appeared that way!).
