"Not So Yellow"

This year, as a gift for friends and family, I made a batch of Limoncello (the link goes to a good wikipedia article). It turned out quite nicely, though not as vibrantly yellow as I would have liked because I used an organic and slightly less refined sugar. The flavor, though, is very good which means that limoncello making will probably become a yearly event. Last night the liqueur went through it's final filtering and bottling. Here's a picture of some of the bottles, corked and sealed in beeswax:

I also made a lable for the little bottles and here's a picture of that:
