I made some limoncello a few weeks ago. I followed these directions from Dabbled (thanks!) and it really turned out great. Many of the other recipes that I saw online used a ton more simple syrup. This recipe only called for 1 cup which is perfect. I used the zest from 8 organic lemons and let the vodka/zest mixture sit for almost 5 weeks. It’ll take the hubby and I forever to get through the bottle, but I know a few friends who might want to come over and help us out.
It’s a little strong going down the throat, so I may have to try it with some seltzer water or something. I also just found a recipe in one of my veg times magazine with limoncello soaked ladyfingers, strawberries and some kind of cream (yogurt, pudding?) . I may have to try that out too.
Totally unrelated, a friend of mine just opened her own etsy shop, Touches of Color. She makes beautiful jewelry and has a great eye for color. I get so excited when friends learn about etsy and are inspired to make beautiful things to sell. Please hop on over and take a look.
