Hi I make a drink like the one you mention, it's called 'crema di limoncello', a milky version of the famous italian dessert liqueur. It's very popular, i always keep it on hand. here's the skinny
peel the outer rind off a few (5-6) lemons. use a vegetable peeler and avoid the white pith under the zesty outside, but don't worry about it too much. soak them in alcohol, i use 500 ml pure (95%) ethanol but you could also use vodka, use more.
after 3-4 days, strain off the peels. the alcohol should be bright yellow and smell amazingly lemony.
bring 1 liter whole milk and 1 kg white sugar to boil, add some vanilla extract or scrape out a vanilla bean. once it reaches a boil (watch carefully, and stir!) shut off heat and leave to cool. once cool combine the milk and the alcohol, and you're done. it's a pale opaque milky yellow, and it's delicious after dinner served chilled. you can reduce the sugar content, as it's quite sweet.

Nice, I'll put this on my "try it next" list.

You can't possibly be serious??? There are a total of 14 threads in this forum, and you want to break it into two separate forums? How about if you open a thread that doesn't interest you, you just move on to the next one.

"Homemade milk liquor"--that sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I would like to try this out.

My last one was chocolate. I took 2 cups of cheap vodka, 2 cups of sugar, 2 cups of whole milk and 1 bar of Hershey's chocolate. I also squeezed a bit of lemon juice (advice from a friend) to bring out the chocolate flavor. I put this in a container for 14 days, shaking it once or twice a day, and left it out at room temp the whole time. 2 weeks after I started it, it looked kinda funny and smelled great. I strained it through cheesecloth and added a splash of vanilla extract. Smells and tastes great. Amazing what you can get from a cheap bottle of vodka. Good stuff. Let me know if you try this or any other variation. Next is something with fruit and mint.
