Welcome back to the final chapters of Limoncello, the epic saga between hooch and citrus. It’s been a long, anxious month since our adventure began but as promised your patience has payed off in spades. With a few last-second adjustments and another 1-2 weeks of painful waiting the final product is here and it’s glorious!
An animated gif is about as simplified as I can make this recipe, but just incase you’ve consumed a bottle of the glowing glory prior to reading here’s some spark notes:
1. PEEL 8 LEMONS (NO PITH!) 2.ADD TO A CONTAINER WITH 1 BOTTLE GRAIN ALCOHOL (OR VODKA IF YOU’RE FEELING LIKE A PANSY) 3.KEEP IN A DARK PLACE FOR 1 MONTH 4.STRAIN OUT LEMON PEELS AND RETURN BOOZE TO CONTAINER 5.ADD EQUAL PARTS (ROUGHLY 2-2.5 CUPS) SIMPLE SYRUP 5.SHAKE TO COMBINE AND PLACE IN FREEZER FOR 1-2 WEEKS 6.SERVE JET-COLD AFTER DINNER OR ADDED TO ESPRESSO FOR A MORNING JUMP-START!
Cin cin tutti!
