Limoncello is a wonderful after Dinner drink. When my folks came back from an Italy trip my father always had a bottle of Limoncello in the freezer. Here’s a pretty easy recipe to make your own. They are all pretty similar on the Web. Have one side by side with an Espresso.
Everclear 151 proof grain spirit 750-ml bottle
granulated sugar 3 1/4 cups
water boiling 3 cups
Peel the lemons zest with a sharp peeler trying not to get the white of the lemon. Add lemon peels to a 1 liter air sealed container. (wine making stores carry them) Put peels in bottle and save lemons for another use. Top off with Everclear. Let sit for a week in a shaded area. This is the infusing process. After the week is over bring your water to a boil and dissolve sugar. Let cool, when cooled add your infused Everclear. This will now make two bottles. (you must have air-tight lids, see above) Refridgerate for 2 days. Then strain out lemon peels and keep in freezer. Enjoy!
