Well............ya'll know that I make Limoncello!
My friend Steve brought me a bag full of lemons
So I got out my potato peeler and peeled all of the
zest off of the outside of the lemons trying really
really hard not to get any of the white pith.
The pith can make the end product bitter.
then I put them in a very clean glass jar
and give them a vodka bath!
Sometimes I use 1/2 vodka and 1/2 Everclear.
This makes the end result just abit stronger.
At that point I make up a simple syrup
with about 6 cups of water and 4 cups of sugar
and mix it with the very lemony vodka in a larger glass jar.
This will sit for another 2-4 weeks.
Sometimes it is hard to wait, but the longer you let
it set the better it is!
but I surely can't waste all those lemons, so I juice all of
the lemons and make LEMONADE!
ta ta for now.
