Homemade Limoncello
  • 10 lemons
  • 1(750 ml) bottle vodka
  • 3cups water
  • 2cups organic sugarfor simple syrup
  1. Peel lemons in long strips with a potato peeler, being careful to get as little pith as possible. Put peels in a large glass pitcher, and pour the vodka over them. Cover, and store at room temperature for 5 days.
  2. To make simple syrup, mix the water and sugar in a pot over low heat until sugar is dissolved. After the peels have been soaking for 5 days, add the simple syrup to the lemon-peel vodka, and store at room temperature overnight.
  3. The next day, strain out and discard lemon peels. Pour limoncello into bottles, and store in the refrigerator or freezer up to 6 months.
