Our first limoncello of the season from scratch – can’t wait to sample. We will give you the verdict in a couple of days. Take 8 lemons and remove the zest in ribbons being very careful to avoid any white pith.
Steep in 750ml of 95% alcohol (not 95 proof, Aussies speak to your friendly chemist) for 4 days in a sealed glass container. Remove the zest (it will crackle as all oils have been leached out by the alcohol). Dilute with 2 litres of sugar syrup (600gm sugar dissolved in 2 litres of water). Bottle. After 2-3 days serve chilled. Salute!!!
The verdict is in! Molto Buono!!!
