Limoncello


I had some cheap and nasty vodka left over from making the amazing vodka jellies for RoseyfestandDougwood, and as far as I am concerned the best thing to do with cheap and nasty vodka is to stuff it full of fruit and sugar! You need:

  • Equal parts vodka, water and sugar
  • Approx 3 lemons per 500ml/pint of vodka

The method is easy:

  1. Peel the zest from the lemons. Try to avoid getting too much of the white pith - that will make the Limoncello bitter. Obviously, don’t waste the lemon juice! Use it for lemonade, or cooking or something.
  2. Cover the zest in vodka, and leave for at least a week. Shake it every so often.
  3. After the Vodka has become lemon-tastic, strain out the zest. Make a simple syrup with the water and sugar and add to the Vodka. Bottle. Try and keep for another week. Try is the important word here - this stuff is lovely!
  4. Store in the freezer, and serve ice cold!
