How To Make Limoncello
- 16 un-waxed lemons - zest and juice
- 2150 ml (.264 Pints)water
- 3200 g (.441 Pounds) (.2 Kilos) caster (super fine) sugar
- 4700 ml (1.232 Pints)(40-80 percent proof) vodka
- 3Limoncello is best served very cold, so for best results, put the glasses and the limoncello in the freezer for a few hours before you're ready to serve it.
Rather than zesting the lemons, they can be peeled with a vegetable peeler (peel only the outer skin, and gently cut the pith away). Then cut the peel into very thin matchsticks. Cook the lemon peel matchsticks in the water/sugar mixture until the syrup thickens slightly then add the lemon juice. Continue with cooking directions from number 3 onward.
