Instructions
  1. A great tasting limoncello starts with freshly harvested organically grown lemons. Wash them. Using your favorite tool for zesting, remove just the thin yellow skin, or zest, of the fruit.
  2. Combine the lemon zest and vodka in a large glass jar, secure a lid, and let sit for at least 1 and up to 3 weeks. See Recipe Note below for the options with 12 zested lemons.
  3. After infusing the vodka for 1 to 3 weeks, prepare sugar syrup. In a pan, combine water, lemon juice, and sugar and bring to simmer until sugar is completely dissolved. Take it off the heat and let cool to the room temperature.
  4. Add sugar syrup to infused vodka and stir. Cover and let it sit for 1 to 3 days, then strain and bottle. Refrigerate limoncello for at least 1 day before serving.
Recipe Notes

So, we end up with 12 zested lemons. How to use them?

  • Slice them and make lemon-infused honey
  • Juice the lemons. Reserve one cup of juice for the syrup to add to your infused vodka when finishing the limoncello. Measure and freeze it until ready to use.
  • Use the rest of the juice to make lemony ice cubes
  • Use the rest of the juice to make lemon tart
  • Use the rest of the juice to make lemon curd
