Limoncello - make your own, as Italian housewives have done for generations

Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur that every self-respecting housewife in the south of Italy makes. Limoncello has a pure lemon flavor without being sour or bitter. It is not difficult to make and should be done when the amalfistrons are at their best. They are easy to recognize, because they are often sold with leaves on them. It is important to follow the recipe carefully to get a perfect limoncello.

1 liter neutral vodka 60% (purchased at the liquor store)

Boil water and sugar, let it boil until the sugar dissolves. It goes quite quickly. Cool completely before pouring into a bowl (save 1 glass). Strain the vodka into the water.

Pour the glass of water into the lemon peel and shake to bring in more of the vodka mixture. Strain this into the bowl as well. Stir well and pour into bottles. Limoncello is chilled and served chilled after a delicious meal.


Then just enjoy delicious home-made limoncello and Italian snacks.
