    Default Limoncello

    Description: served ice cold. I keep it in the freezer.
    It can be sipped straight-up, mixed with tonic or a bit added into champagne.

    I am transported back to the Amalfi Coast of Italy when sipping this.

    There are variations to this that can be made with mandarin oranges or mandarin oranges and fresh ginger root. Limes are much more difficult for the rind is very thin.
    Serving Size: 3 1/4 quarts
    Time: over 1 month
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. 17 large lemons, preferably organic
    2. Two 750-milliliter bottles grain alcohol
    3. 5 1/2 cups water
    4. 6 cups sugar
    Preparation:
    1. wash and dry lemons
    2. be prepared to make lemonade with the juice from the lemons.
    Instructions:
    1. remove yellow rind, leaving the pith intact
    2. place grated rind and grain alcohol into a glass jar and place in a cool dark place.
    3. shake daily for 2 weeks.
    4. On the 13th day, bring the water to a boil in a large saucepan. Add the sugar and remove from the heat, stirring until it is dissolved. Cover and let cool to room temperature.
    5. the following day I strain the peel from the alcohol, discarding the peel.
    6. add the alcohol to the sugar syrup and stir.
    7. Place back into the large jar and again store it in a cool dark place for 3 weeks, shaking 1-2x per day.
    8. After 3 weeks transfer the liquor into small bottles and store in the freezer.
