the delicious Limoncello

I have made this delicious Limoncello multiple times over the last 5 years or so.  Always delicious!  I use more lemons, at times, for a stronger lemon flavor.

This Limoncello recipe is sweet and delicious.  It tastes like a lemon drop. Delicious drizzled over vanilla ice cream, too!

This Limoncello recipe is sweet and delicious.  It tastes like a lemon drop. Delicious drizzled over vanilla ice cream, too!


Scale

Ingredients

10 lemons

1 (750-ml) bottle vodka

3 1/2 cups water

2 1/2 cups sugar


Instructions

  1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the lemons in long strips (reserve the lemons for another use). Using a small sharp knife, trim away the white pith from the lemon peels; discard the pith. Place the lemon peels in a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Steep the lemon peels in the vodka for 4 days at room temperature.
  2. Stir the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely. Pour the sugar syrup over the vodka mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the limoncello through a mesh strainer. Discard the peels. Transfer the limoncello to bottles. Seal the bottles and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 month.
