21 BEST Limoncello Cocktails For Your Maximum Enjoyment

That sunny yellow liqueur, popular as a finisher or aperitif at Italian restaurants around the world—add Limoncello Cocktails to your new DIY list for your bar at home!

Limoncello has always been a popular liqueur, not just in Italy but in various parts of the world.

Whether homemade or store-bought, this liqueur is something that every adult should try at least once! 

Make your own limoncello or pick up a bottle and make some delicious limoncello cocktails at home!

The taste is sweet and sour but savory and enjoyable, making it an excellent drink for parties.

It’s also reasonably easy to make; you just need a great batch of fresh lemons, an entire bottle of the vodka of choice, sugar, and a bit of patience.

For 3 to 12 months, you can store your limoncello in the freezer without losing its rich flavor.

Of course, drinking plain limoncello can already be enjoyable for some people.

However, if you’re an adventurous person or love to taste different kinds of bright cocktails, add mixers of all kinds to create a fantastic new and unique taste.

Bourbon? Give Fool’s Gold a try!

Cranberry juice? You might like the Cranberry Limoncello Spritzer

Whole strawberries and raspberries? The Strawberry & Limoncello Sangria or Limoncello & Raspberry Sparkling Slush Cocktail are tasty and fun that everyone will like.

Gin? 

Lime juice? 

You bet there’s a limoncello mixture for that!

#21 is undoubtedly something you’d bring out to a fabulous party!

Here are 21 limoncello recipes that you would probably share with your drinking buddies!

Enjoy responsibly…because these are delicious!

The mixture of bourbon’s strong vanilla and caramel taste and the sweetness of the lemon and peach reserves are balanced with black lemon and Orleans bitters, producing a significantly stabilized and refreshing drink.

You can also add herbs like rosemary, lavender, or basil to add excellent flavor to the bourbon and limoncello mix.

The perfect drink to cool down during the intense summer season!

It only uses two ingredients; LaCroix Limoncello and Limoncello liqueur; paired with ice and a few lemon slices, you’re already good to go!

A great combination of lemon and more lemon!

An Italian twist to a classic Mexican drink, you can swap the agave with honey or granulated sugar, depending on what sweetener you’d like.

For the rim of the glass, mix in some kosher salt and lemon zest, and you won’t help but make a face once your lips touch the edge.

Shake up your margarita mix, add your limoncello, and then pour your club soda or sparkling water before using a lemon wedge as a garnish.

The glorious pink color results from a mixture of frozen pink coconut water, Empress Gin, Lillet Blanc, lemon juice, and limoncello, giving off a solid yet colorful burst of flavor.

It gives off a zesty lemon flavor (and slightly increases the acidity), so you can add some simple syrup to balance out the drink.

Finish the drink off with an expressed orange twist and an edible flower as a garnish.

Use brut champagne, cava brut, or prosecco to add more to the drink’s sweetness alongside the sugared rim.

No need to purchase expensive champagne at all!

Roll the lemon rind strips into the sugar and put them in the glass as garnish.

Cosmopolitan drinks are bright and flashy, and it packs quite a punch on the first sip, so you’ll need the sugared rim to balance out the tart, the sour, and the vodka itself.

You can also add grenadine if you feel like it still lacks some flavor or color.

Garnish it with a twisted lemon rind strip and add a few frozen cranberries as a final touch.

This drink is another excellent and balanced combination of tart and sweetness with a refreshing touch of fizzy soda.

Pour the mixture into a large glass with ice and garnish it with whole blueberries and lemon rind strips.

A quick and easy bubbly and refreshing summer drink where you can add fresh raspberries or strawberries into the mix garnished with mint!

It’s much better to drink it chilled in a large pitcher for you and your friends to enjoy together.

If you think slushies are just for kids, here’s the perfect adult slushie to prove you wrong.

Mix up some homemade strawberry lemonade, combine it with limoncello and sparkling wine and store it in the freezer for a few hours!

If you don’t want it frozen, you can drink it with only a few pieces of ice.

If you want a more “kid-friendly” version of this drink, you can replace the limoncello and sparkling wine with sparkling grape juice!

Pour the limoncello over the ice, follow it with orange juice and then finish it off with grenadine to pull off that gradient sunrise effect.

You can swap the orange juice with pineapple juice and garnish it with a maraschino cherry or an orange slice.

Reposado tequila is highly recommended for this drink, mainly if you’re aiming for an excellent yet affordable margarita mix.

Cover the rim of your glass with salt after rubbing a slice of lemon onto it, pour your mixture after shaking it, and garnish the edge with a lemon slice!

Enjoy your new summer favorite!

A classic and simple mixture of straight bourbon whiskey and limoncello garnished with fresh sage and a lemon wheel.

You can never go wrong with a great classic.

We have a lot of pink drinks on this list, and this recipe is undoubtedly one of them.

Pop off that pink sparkling wine, mix in a pitcher with hulled and sliced strawberries with your limoncello, and chill it in the freezer for at least an hour.

Stir it with ginger ale after and pour it into your glass, topped with slices of strawberries and lemon wheels.

This drink may go down easy, but it packs a great punch (pun intended!)

Regular vodka is fine, but if you want to spice things up, you can use blueberry-infused vodka and blueberry syrup.

Garnish your drink with a basil leaf and put in whole blueberries, and you’re all set!

A great holiday drink for you and your loved ones, this drink is relatively easy and quick to make.

You can use either white cranberry juice or regular cranberry juice to mix in the drink, followed by sparkling water or even lemon-lime water like Sprite or 7-Up.

Gently stir the drink, put in some frozen cranberries, and immediately serve it in a punch bowl or a solo glass!

Fire up your grill because this one’s coming in hot!

Roast your thyme sprigs for a few seconds, stir up your gin and limoncello with ice, and strain the mixture into a chilled rock glass with ice. 

Then garnish it with your grilled thyme as a finishing touch!

After generously splashing your frozen cocktail glass with limoncello, it’s time to show off your premium vodka.

Remember to only generously splash your cocktail glass and throw away the remaining limoncello as it’s not needed.

Strain the shaken vodka with ice onto the glass, garnish it with a slice of lemon or a strip of lemon rind and enjoy!

It is a hard yet delicious drink that would probably make you doubt that you can stand up straight after chugging it down.

You can use whatever glass you like, add some ice, pour your limoncello, vodka, and lime juice in and stir it well.

After stirring, pour and mix in your ginger beer and garnish it with a wheel of lime.

A limoncello mix to a Tom Collins cocktail!

Combine and mix the limoncello, gin, club soda, lemon juice, and simple mint syrup in a glass. 

Add a dash of club soda to finish, and garnish it with a lemon wheel or mint sprigs.

Lemon, lemon, raspberry, and more lemon!

The berries (which break into tiny balls when frozen and cool) are muddled in the vodka, limoncello, and a touch of simple syrup, and then the cocktail glass is rimmed with a combination of salt, sugar, and citrus.

Finish it off with sparkling water and garnish it with a lemon wheel on the side.

You can swap the champagne with sparkling wine, paired with simple strawberry syrup, and then mix it with some limoncello in a champagne glass.

Slowly pour the champagne or the sparkling water over the limoncello and strawberry syrup if you want to make the red color stay at the bottom and garnish it with a thyme sprig.
