How To Make: The Best Homemade Limoncello Ever!

/ Friday, December 28, 2012

We sipped a bit of the ice cold limoncello we made for gifting this year to toast a holiday season well done—and my goodness was it delightful! Boozy, tart and just-sweet-enough, I'm very thankful we saved a bottle for ourselves. Here's how you can make it at home...

MAKES: about 2 to 3 dozen servings

1 (750 ml) bottle vodka (cheap stuff is totally fine!)
Zest of 10 to 12 lemons, peeled in wide strips
2 cups granulated sugar

1. Put the vodka and lemon zest in a tightly sealed container and set aside at room temperature for at least 1 week or up to 2 months, shaking the container occasionally. 
2. Strain the lemon-flavored vodka into a clean pitcher or container; discard the zest. 
3. Heat the sugar and 2 cups water in a small saucepan over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar dissolved. Cool completely. 
4. Gradually stir the simple syrup into the lemon-flavored vodka until you reach the desired sweetness. Transfer to a tightly sealed bottle and store in the freezer for months!

Note: I decided to try Martha Stewart's fabric-wrapped wine bottle technique for packaging the limoncello. I really liked how they came out but boyfriend still argues they looked like molotov cocktails...
