Limoncello

Ingredients

  1. 11 lemons
  2. 1 750-ml bottle of Everclear, or other overproof grain spirit (140+ proof)
  3. 3 cups (21 ounces) granulated sugar
  4. 3 cups boiling water

Directions

  1. Peel wide strips of lemon zest (avoiding as much of the white pith as possible) with a sharp vegetable peeler; reserve lemons for another use. Add the lemon peels to a 1-liter (or larger) airtight container and top off with the Everclear.
  2. Let stand at room temperature in a dark place for at least 3 days and up to 1 week.
  3. After the infusing period is over, stir together the sugar and boiling water until the sugar has dissolved; allow to cool. Combine the lemon peel/Everclear solution with the sugar syrup in an airtight container (two if necessary, space wise) and refrigerate 1 day.
  4. Strain out the lemon peels and bottle. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
