If you've got Lemons make Limoncello!!

This superb digestive originates from Amalfi, the lemons from there are amazing.

Ingredients for about 2 liters (about 8 cups) of Limoncello

8 big untreated organic lemons

1 litre (4 cups) of pure or you can use a 100-proof Vodka

600 g (3 cups) of granulated sugar

1 litre (4 cups) of water

Step 1 Wash the lemons then dry them with kitchen paper. Do not rub them too much so as not to disperse oils and perfume. Use only ORGANIC UNTREATED LEMONS

Step 2 Peel the lemons with a peeler. Take care to remove ONLY the zest leaving the white spongy one on the lemon, as it could give a bitter taste to the liqueur.

Step 3 Place the lemon zest in a large airtight glass jar then pour the alcohol. Let it infuse for 2 weeks in a cool place out of direct sunlight. Better cover the jar with a cloth to be sure that it remains in the dark. During this time, SHAKE THE JAR EVERY DAY to mix the ingredients well without ever opening the jar.

Step 4 After the required infusion time, you need to make the syrup. Put the water and sugar in a saucepan and, over low heat, bring to a boil. Stir constantly until the sugar is completely dissolved. Then let it cool down.

Step 5 Now filter the liquid with a sieve and remove the lemon zest.

Step 6 Once the syrup is cold, add it to the infusion of alcohol and lemon zest and mix well. Now pour the Limoncello into glass bottles with hermetic closure or cork stopper. Store the bottles in a cool, dark place for one week.

Now your homemade Limoncello is ready! Put it in the freezer ready to drink on any occasion…ENJOY
