      • 5 unwaxed lemons




      • 1l bottle vodka


      • 750g caster sugar
      • 700ml boiling water



      Method

      • Pare the zest from all the lemons, taking care not to include any white pith. Put the zest in a large clean jar and pour over the vodka. Cover with a tightly fitting lid and leave for a week, shaking the jar each day.
      • Put the sugar in a heatproof bowl and pour over the boiling water, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the vodka and peels and leave for a further week, shaking the jar regularly.
      • Strain into decorative bottles, adding a few strips of lemon zest to each bottle.

          yup - you want the oils from the zest that are far more powerful .... juice only makes it weaker!

          if the ABV is too low you risk bacterial growth from the organics (fruit!) you have put into the mix, which will have all that sugar to feed on too!

            Makes sense i suppose, its very lemony, it would expect a certain amount of actually juice. Live an learn ey!

                I like a Limoncello with a cigar occasionally, though I'mm sure the homemade version is infinitely better than the store-bought stuff!

                  I make limoncello and arancello (see pic)
                  It's a wonderful drink and lasts ages.
                  Doing a grapefruit one next.

                    The age old question... Do you keep the lemoncello on or off?

                      One of these bottles has been labelled with the date it was bottled and I plan to keep it for a year or two. Just being kept in a cupboard.
                      I only freeze when I plan to drink but once in the freezer, it stays there.

                        Limoncello is the exception to my rule that I like all alcohol..... Terrible stuff, tastes like window cleaner.
