Take a break from DIY projects for the home and try this DIY. The process is not hard but requires time. If you start now, you’ll have your own batch of yummy limoncello by mid summer to add some pep to your favorite iced drinks.
I mixed the bottles of vodka and everclear together and then poured half into two separate containers (I used oversized large mason jars). The key here is whatever container you choose has to have enough room to add additional liquids later on in the process.
Strain the lemon zest mixture using a very fine strainer or cheesecloth. The goal is to have no floating bits of zest remaining in the liquid. Once strained, make a simple syrup and add the simple syrup to the strained mixture. Store the new mixture back in a dark place for at least a month.
After that month, I bottled my batch (bottles found at Marshalls & Pier 1) and stored them in the freezer. I also tied a small bow & label to a few and gave them away as gifts. Limoncello should be served iced cold. It will not freeze due to the alcohol content. It can also be used as an ingredient in a variety of desserts (berry trifle) or cocktails.
