Ever since I saw "Under the Tuscan Sun", I've enjoyed making Limoncello. (I mean what woman wouldn't have that drink and this lovely person seared into her memory?)
So, now we come to my suggestion: a delightful way to spend a cold and dismal, or, as is the case down here, warm, overcast and muggy New Year's Day:
Northern Hemisphere: Two shots of Limoncello. Add to a small wine-glass of mulled wine. Sip.
Southern Hemisphere: Two shots of Limoncello. Add to a tall chilled glass of 1/2 and 1/2 cheap sparkling white wine and dry lemonade. Slurp.
Now, come with me on a auditory Terry-Pratchettisque-type leap from home-made LIMONCELLO to home-made LEGO CELLO....
Below is Nathan Sawaya playing his cello.

Now, off you go and grab the kid's lego and see what you can make!
