  • Additional Information

    The "fattest" cream available where I live is only 35% fat, closer to UK whipping cream I think, but it worked fine. Even using a hand-whisk, this is really very easy and incredibly decadent.

    • Made a batch of this ice cream yesterday. It set beautifully to soft scoop consistence and all of my guests and I thought it was divine. I personally found the limoncello a bit too potent (I actually got a bit tipsy on my portion, although I'm not a regular drinker) and so next time, I would probably cut back on it. My guests agreed that it had a real kick to it but felt it was perfect exactly as it was.

    • Very simple recipe, although definitely needed a full 24 hours for it to fully set to soft scoop consistency. It was absolutely delicious! However, it was probably just a little too alcoholic for me (I actually got tipsy on the portion that I ate!) and probably next time, I would cut the Limoncello by half. That said, all of my guests loved it also.

    • I halved this recipe and used store-bought limoncello. After over 2 days in the freezer it has not firmed up. Flavor is good but it's more like a milkshake. What was the alcohol content of your limoncello?
