DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the lemons, using soap, rinse well.
  • Peel the lemons. I used my Microplane Zester and got lovely lemon zest, but you can also use a potato peeler. Make sure not to get any of the bitter white pith.
  • Place the peel into a bowl and cover with the vodka. I used a large Tupperware bowl with a cover.
  • Let the lemons infuse in the vodka for one week.
  • Line a strainer with paper towels and strain the lemony vodka into a bowl that will hold more than twice its volume.
  • Mix the sugar with the water in a pot and let it come to a boil.
  • Boil for 2 minutes, giving it an occasional stir.
  • Let cool.
  • Add the sugar syrup to the lemon vodka and mix.
  • Place in your favorite bottle.
  • Keep the Limoncello in the freezer (it won't freeze).
