Abby Miranda

This is the picture that was on last year's label of our homemade "Limoncella". Abby Miranda graced the bottles of "Abby Creek Cellar's" second release. James and I were fortunate enough to get a very coveted recipe for the yummy liqueur from an old gentleman in Italy. It is the best we've ever tasted.

We're working on the next batch now. The first 40 days of aging it are it needs another 40 days after the addition of a few extra ingredients. Then it will be ready for bottling and labeling.

If any of you have a fun idea for our next label (with Abby as the star again of course)...please let me know. If James and I choose your idea...then I will send you a bottle of the lemony lip-licking drink for free...yes, for free! It's perfect for sipping on hot summer nights...cools your toes and warms your heart.

Yummy ~ Limoncella!! I would love to buy a bottle of that. I didn't know you were in that business. Wow, I'm impressed. How does one go about ordering from you?

Okay, I really feel stupid since I never heard of Limoncella. So of course I had to look it up on the internet. Sounds damn good to me! Not being Italian myself, but having many family and friends that are Italian here in the Chicago area, I can’t believe I’ve never heard of it! I'll have to go to our liquor store and see if they have some. I'm dieing to try it now! Maybe it will inspire me with an idea for your new label with Abby!! Love ya! Your Windy City Gang!

Great label ... I giggled when I saw the fruits piled high on Abby - what a beautiful dog!

I hope the second release is a success. Your Limoncella sounds delicious. I will set my mind to coming up with a good idea for your next label!
