Although I’d never heard of this drink until recently, Limoncello is a lemon liqueur. It’s a dessert drink that’s supposed to aid in digestion.
The recipe for homemade Limoncello follows:
750 ml bottle of vodka
1 cup sugar
Peel the lemons and place them in a glass jar, avoiding the white part. Add vodka. Close the jar and let sit for 2 weeks, shaking daily. When the peels lose color, it’s ready.
Use the remainder of the lemons to make lemonade. 🙂
Make simple syrup by mixing 1 cup sugar with 1 cup water. Heat in saucepan until sugar dissolves. Add the syrup to the limoncello base. Use a funnel to pour the limoncello into clean, sealable bottles and store in freezer. Pour in small cocktail glasses and serve.
