Limoncello is a syrupy, lemon-flavor Italian liqueur. Unlike most liqueurs, it can be easily made at home since it requires only basic constituents and tools. Making Limoncello is easy and rewarding-- for the simple delight of drinking something great that you made from scratch.

One of the fascinating aspects of Limoncello is that it does not have a sour taste if it is made correctly. This is owed to the fact that there is no lemon juice in Limoncello. The lemon taste is as a result of lemon zest found on the exterior of the lemon peels, where the vital oils are most concentrated.

History of Limoncello

Limoncello has for a long time been a staple drink in the lemon-producing expanse along the Italian Amalfi Coast in Sorrento and Capri. The Amalfi Coast is famous for its citrus groves and narrow meandering roads. Genuine Limoncello is produced from the Sorrento lemons, which are found on the Amalfi Coast. People in Italy have bequeathed the recipes for making Limoncello for generations, as each family in Italy has its individual Limoncello recipe.

In its native Italy, Limoncello is often taken cold, as a digestive or an after-dinner drink. Limoncello is especially invigorating early taken on a warm evening; however it is pleasurable any time you take it.

Traditionally Limoncello is made from the zest of Femminello St. Teresa lemons that are also called Sfusato or Sorrento lemons. Peels without the pith or Lemon zest are steeped in cured spirit until the oil is produced. The consequential yellow juice is then blended with plain syrup. The varying ratio of sugar to and temperature will have an effect on the viscosity, clarity, and flavor. Dense Limoncellos are as a result of the impulsive emulsification (also known as the Ouzo Effect) of the sugar syrup and extorted lemon oils.

Lemonade for summer

The sweet taste of lemonade is best enjoyed most people during summer. Nothing beats a chilly glass of lemonade on a warm summer day. As we approach summertime, most people are inclined to lemonade drinks. If you are yet to try the various lemon variations of Limoncello, summertime is your best moment to start taking pleasure in this invigorating e-juice flavor.

When one thinks about the environmental effects of cigarettes versus the E-Cig, it is not hard to envision the "gifts" that the cigarettes give. The butts are strewn along the sidewalks, floating down the streams behind fisherman and riding the best of waves along the coast. The ashes are discarded in just the same manner - but what do they matter?  The Earth eats them up in moments, the water cascades through them and melts away their very existence. All this happens within moments, or does it? Have you ever sat transfixed on a thought and just studied the results beyond the realm of the very sight of its mere existence?

The filters have been found in the stomachs of our wildlife who often think that the cigarettes are the food that they have searched for. Animals that ingest nicotine into their stomachs can die from malnutrition and starvation. The filters are not biodegradable and, therefore, and can remain in our waters and on our lands for vast period of time. While this may seem trivial to the average smoker, it is in fact a large scale problem when you look at the picture as a whole. There are trillions and trillions of filters discarded every year. Every one of these filters end up back into our environment where they never were before.

If one never thought about the effects of one filter on wildlife, take the tour. The filter is ingested by a turtle that is now forever full because its small stomach cannot digest the filter. He dies of starvation. As his body begins decaying, a vulture comes along and takes in the filter believing it to be food. The cycle starts again because as with the turtle, the filter becomes lodged. This process is repeated over and over for 10 years with the first prey leaching all 4,800 cancer causing chemicals back into our environment to pollute whatever area and species that may come in contact with that. The initial damage is not enough in the human form; it needs to replicate itself for the next 10-15 years before the filter will finally decay.

The filters that enter into the Earth through the dirt, will also affect our ecosystem by contaminating our soils, plants, the groundwater and the wells that produce clean drinking water for our children, elderly, pregnant women etc. They are especially damaging to those who are less than a year old, the "pick up and try anything" stage. According the KCET in California, cigarette butts are the number one discarded item in that state, with the San Francisco Bay Area being the Country's highest collection area with approximately 845,000 tons. Cigarette butts produce the most damaging effects on the environment. One cigarette butt (filter) continues its killing spree for 10-15 years before succumbing to its own natural death.

In contrast, the E-Cigarette does none of this. It does not enter the environment.

Although April was tapped as the host of International Guitar Month back in 1987, the event harkened back to an earlier time when the lead guitarist dominated the stage lineups of bands from the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and 80s. Established as a occasion when guitar manufacturers, aficionados, and players could congregate and discuss the latest trends in guitars, the month of April is a great time for you and your friends to get together, relax, and play a few chords of your favorite Led Zeppelin song as you celebrate the past with the newest flavor of ejuice like raspberry or caramel cake flavor e-vape cigarette.

Environment Evocative of a Beatnik Coffee Shop

Deeply ingrained within those early concert images of the 1960s and 60s is the smoke filled clubs and amphitheaters that seemed to hearken back to a more hedonistic time. With the availability of vapes, in a variety of flavors, you can replicate those clubs scenes just as they were practiced forty years before, but you can do so within the legal guidelines proscribed by modern day fire ordinances. The use of vapes is fairly ubiquitous these days owing to the convenience afforded by their use in places where traditional tobacco products are barred.

That being said of course, you don't need to go out to have a good jam session, any available garage space or empty living room is an awesome space to enjoy a flavored vape. With an array of flavors, and the ability to customize different blends of flavor, you can enjoy a vaping experience that defies all expectations.

It's that time of year again - the time when you actually have permission to prank your friends! That's right, April Fool's Day is almost here and you probably have something in mind already for your friends, but have you ever wondered how this odd little holiday came to be? While there is nothing in the volumes of history to let us know exactly how it originated, it is commonly believed that it came about in 16th century France when the Gregorian calendar was adopted and New Year's Day changed from April 1 to January 1. People who continued to celebrate the New Year using the old calendar were labeled "Fools" and were subjected to pranks.

Around the World: April Fool's Day

In France, the country that we credit for the origination of the holiday, the day is known as "Poisson d'Avril," which literally translated means "Fish of April." This holiday is for the children. They color paper fish, which then they try to stick to the backs of as many adults as they can. Once the adult finds the fish the child yells out "Poisson d'Avril!"

In Germany, the holiday is said to have originated when a currency change was to occur on April 1, 1530 in Augsburg. Several opportunists were hoping to profit from change to unify the currency. Sadly for them, the law was not enacted and the speculators lost their money, bringing ridicule from many in the town.

This incident is said to be the beginning of April Fool's Day in Germany. By the late 1700s, the practice of running fictitious news stories on April 1st, soon became the hallmark of the day. One such notable story ran in The German Gardener's News and touted new varieties of glowing plants--Sunflower Lamps--that gave off so much light, one could read by it.

In Scotland they enjoy the day so much they spend two days celebrating. April 1 used to be called"hunitgowks" day, from hunting gowks, or cuckoo birds, referring to foolish people. Traditionally, the unwitting person is asked to deliver a message. Upon opening the note, the recipient reads the following: "Dinna laugh, dinna smile. Hunt the gowk another mile." The recipient responds to the messenger that he will only help if the messenger will run again. The recipient writes the message again, and thus the poor fool is caught in the loop of never ending messages. The second day is called Taily Day and is filled with pranks and foolishness having to do with rumps, and is thought to be the origin of the sign, "Kick me."

Ever serious, Canada and the UK restrict the Tom Foolery to the mornings, so if you want to play pranks in these stoic regions, you best be up with the sun. Anyone playing pranks in the afternoon becomes the fool.

Whatever you do, a nice pull on a tasty vapor, like our delicious Blackberry Limoncello, is the best way to finish up your foolishness.
