pucker up, birthday girl
Although the calendar says September, it feels like we are still in the thrall of summer. A friend, whose favorite flavor in the whole world is lemon (as is mine), celebrated a birthday this weekend. To help her extend the celebration, I am going to give her a bottle of limoncello that I brewed this summer (you can read about my brewing and processing of this batch here and here).
I printed a label (2″ x 2 5/8″), stuck it on a shipping tag (4 3/4″ x 2 3/8″), and fastened it with ribbon to the bottle. In the past, I have stuck the labels directly to the bottles, but since the bottles have been in the fridge chilling, the stickers would have puckered and wrinkled if I had put them on the cold, damp glass. I think I prefer this tag-labeling technique, because I can write a personalized message on the tag’s other side.
Happy Birthday, Kathy!
