Well, here is it, for those of you who are not able to travel to Italy to taste this magical liqueur.
15 - 20 lemons
2 x 750 ml Everclean Alcohol (or Vodka)
2 cups of water
3 cups of sugar
1 x 2 litre glass jar with a sealed lid
Wash and dry the lemons and remove the yellow peel from the lemons with a sharp peeler or fine grater
Place the peels in a glass jar and add the Everclear alcohol to about 2 inches below the top and seal tightly
Leave the jar to steep in a cool place until the peels lose their color - at least 2 weeks.
After the two weeks place the water and sugar in a saucepan, stir and slowly boil until liquid turns clear.
Allow the syrup to cool to room temperature then add the cooled syrup to the jar with the lemons and place them back in a cool place for a further two weeks.
Strain the liquid through a coffee filter and pour the limoncello into another container. Press down to remove all the alcohol that you can from the peels before discarding them.
Stir the liquid with a clean plastic spoon.
Pour the liquor into clean bottles, seal tightly and leave the finished bottles for at least 1 week before consuming.
