A Recipe that Combines Exoticism and Freshness:
Volcano Lemon Burst® and Volcano Lime Burst® are bottled in an artisan factory, near Sicily's famed Mount Etna Volcano. The lemons come directly from the rich soil of Sicily, while the limes are part of a fragrant variety from Mexico. "These recipes provide incredible refreshment with fresh citrus taste that capture the spirit of the holiday season. From our famed Lemon Bursting Bars to our delicious Volcano Limoncello Burst®, there is a recipe to enhance every meal during the holiday season," declared Kahane.
LEMON BURSTING BARS
4 tbs. Volcano Lemon Burst®
1 box lemon cake mix
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
Cream softened butter and sugar. Beat in one egg at a time. Stir in cake mix and Volcano Lemon Burst® until blended. Bake in 9x13" pan, lined with foil and buttered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes. Let cool in pan and cut into squares. Keep in tightly covered container after bars cool completely.
LIME EXPLOSION HONEY CHICKEN
¼ cup Volcano Lime Burst®
2 tbs. honey
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. ground red hot peppers
1 lb. chicken pieces
Combine all ingredients. Brush over chicken. Bake at 450° for 25-30 minutes. Turn and baste with juices every 10 minutes. Broil 3-4 minutes or until brown.
VOLCANO LIMONCELLO BURST®
1 ½ squeeze bottles of Volcano Lemon Burst® (300ml - 10.1 ounces)
1 cup organic sugar
2 cups water
2 cups plain vodka (80 proof)
Heat the water and melt the sugar in it to obtain a clear syrup. Don't let it boil. Set aside and let it cool.
Mix together the syrup with vodka and squeeze in the Volcano Lemon Burst®. Stir the Limoncello Burst and refrigerate it before drinking. Do not add ice.
The final liquor has a mild alcoholic content (35-40 proof). Add and extra cup of vodka and another ½ squeeze bottle of Volcano Lemon Burst® (100ml), to increase that to approximately 45-55 proof.
This liqueur will freeze if put into the freezer, unlike higher proof liqueurs.

ITALIAN VOLCANO® CITRUS-MARINATED ROASTED TURKEY Italian Volcano® Citrus Marinade:
1. Combine all Italian Volcano® Citrus Marinade ingredients in disposable aluminum roasting pan, large enough to hold the turkey and to allow the marinade to rise high enough to coat about half the turkey. Rinse turkey well and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in marinade. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours, or overnight, turning turkey several times to evenly marinate.
2. Preheat oven to 450°F.
3. Remove turkey from marinade and place in a roasting pan. Strain marinade, reserving solids and liquid. Stuff solids into the cavity of the turkey. Pour liquid around turkey in pan. Roast 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F and continue roasting, basting turkey every 30 minutes with pan juices, until internal temperature reaches 180°F on a meat thermometer, about 15 to 20 minutes per pound. Let turkey stand 10 minutes before carving. Serves 12.
