What is Limoncello?

From Wikipedia:

“Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur mainly produced in Southern Italy, especially in the region around the Gulf of Naples, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the coast of Amalfi, and islands of Procida, Ischia, and Capri.”

While 2 weeks may not seem “quick” to you, traditionally, the peels are steeped for many weeks before being added to the simple syrup. 10-14 days is sufficient for a slightly lesser, yet super tasty, infusion. You’ll notice an oil slick on the top of your vodka after this time. Limoncello is also made with a certain type of lemon in Italy, but it’s one not easily (if at all) attainable here.

One of my reasons for doing this is because I love lemons, wanted to try limoncello & almost cried at some of the price tags I’ve seen. I’m really quite pleased with this recipe, which is a compilation of many recipes & articles I’ve read across the web. I hope you are, too!
