Adventures in the Kitchen: Limoncello

Limoncello Limoncello

Extra Virgin is one of my absolute favorite shows on the Cooking Channel.  I have adored Debi Mazar since FOREVER and to watch her and her husband, Gabriele, be adorable in the kitchen is the best!  When they made Limoncello, of course I was all, "I can do that!" and I put it off for quite some time...
Until I was thinking of the perfect wedding present for Lauren and Chandler.  Their home bar rivals that of the fanciest bars and speakeasies around town and I wanted to give them something unique.  So why not homemade hooch?!

It happened!  Lauren and Chandler got married and it was BEAUTIFUL!!  I can't wait to see all the shots Megan Saul captured from the event because, naturally, I had such a great time reuniting with friends and enjoying myself that I forgot to take photos.  Ah well...better to live in the moment, right!

1-2. Lauren and me
3. All the bridesmaids!  Lisa, Lauren, Cynthia, and me
4-5. Lauren and Chandler in the "Secret Stairwell" at the Trolley Barn
6. Alex and me.  We snuck down to the bridal hangout area to take a full-length photo :) (we probably could've just asked somebody to take one...)
7. Richy and me.  I've known Richy since the good ol' college days.  Fun fact: It was through Richy that Lauren and I met!  :)
7. Lauren's gorgeous bouquet (assembled with love by her Dad)
8. Alex's pretty latte.  It wouldn't have been a L+C event without coffee, right?!
