Last month, I decided that I wanted to try and make Limoncello at home. The menu I followed called for lemon rinds only, so the first order of business was to peel all the lemons (we've slowly been using the lemons themselves, so as not to be wasteful):
I wanted to make it a bit lighter and stronger, so I doubled (or more) the vodka in a large glass jar, poured in the lemon rinds and then waited, patiently, for about a month:
The next step was all about making the simple syrup:
Adding it to the vodka/lemon mix, tasting!, and, once again...waiting. The recipe calls for it to sit and meld for 10-14 days, so in a couple of weeks I'll let you know how it went!
