Limoncello bottles

Bring the Amalfi Coast to your kitchen with some home bottled limoncello. This refreshing citrus beverage is surprisingly easy to make with only a few simple steps.

For this recipe you will need:

6 or 7 fresh lemons
1 liter or quart of vodka or pure grain alcohol
5 cups water
3 cups sugar

Step 1: Use a vegetable peeler to zest the ripe lemons. Avoid the white pith of the lemons by trimming with a small knife.
Step 2: Add the lemon peels to a 2-quart pitcher. Pour alcohol over the lemon slices and seal with plastic wrap. Let the mixture steep during four days at room temperature.
Step 3: After four days, heat water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Once fully cooled, add the now sugar syrup to the vodka-lemon mixture.
Step 4: Cover the pitcher and let sit overnight.
Step 5: Strain the limoncello and transfer to your limoncello bottles.
Step 6: Refrigerate for at least four hours and your very own limoncello is ready to enjoy!
