One of my favorite after dinner drinks is a sippable drink called Limoncello. It is so good, and a perfect dessert drink to serve your guests. It is a fun drink to gift at Christmas, as it tastes just like liquid sunshine. This is a great time to save jugs, too, from your apple cider purchases this fall!
I found this darling jug at Pier 1. I love the chalkboard label!
Store this in the refrigerator for instant pouring. You can serve it in its own glass, such as these from Crate and Barrel.
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Ingredients (approx 8 cups)
- 10-12 lemons
- 1 750 ml bottle of vodka
- 3 c water
- 2 c sugarInstructionsWith a vegetable peeler or sharp knife, remove the peel from the lemon in long strips. Make sure there is no white pith remaining on the peels. Place the peels in a glass bowl, and pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Let the peels and vodka do their job for at least 4 days.Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 3-5 minutes. Cool. Pour the syrup into the vodka mixture. Cover and let it steep overnight. Strain the mixture through a mesh strainer, and then strain one more time using a coffee filter. Transfer to a pretty jar, and refrigerate.Powered by Recipage
