Authentic Italian Limoncello

Italian Limoncello is a vibrant and refreshing liqueur renowned for its intense lemon flavor and bright yellow hue. Originating from the Amalfi Coast, it's crafted by steeping lemon zest in high-proof alcohol, then sweetening the resulting infusion with sugar syrup. Limoncello embodies the essence of Italian citrus, offering a zesty, tangy taste with a hint of sweetness. It's traditionally served chilled as a digestif after meals, offering a delightful burst of citrusy refreshment that captures the sunny spirit of Italy.

You will need:

3-4 organic lemons, preferably Meyer lemons

organic is best as the peel will infuse the alcohol

375 ml grain alcohol such as Everclear

(Do not substitute vodka)

1 1/2 cups sugar

3 1/2 cups water

You will need a sealed jar to infuse the alcohol and a lovely bottle to store your limoncello. Limoncello is stored in the freezer, so make sure your container will fit upright.

Peel your lemons with a potato peeler. Make sure you are not including the pith in your peels, it will make your infusion bitter. Place in a jar and pour the alcohol over the peels. Make sure the jar seals tightly. Store in a cool, dark place for 1 week. You may swirl the jar every day, but not completely necessary. When the color is a pleasing dark shade of yellow, it is ready. Infusing for too long can make the infusion bitter.

Heat 3 1/2 cups of water on the stove and add 1/2 cups of sugar and stir until dissolved. Let cool to room temperature. Strain lemon peel mixture into a pitcher. Add cooled simple syrup. Mix well. Use a funnel to fill your beautiful container.

Store in freezer and serve when chilled.

Limoncello is traditionally served in apperitif glasses.

Add 1 ounce to pomegranate or cranberry juice and serve as a refreshing cocktail.
