Limoncello takes some time but it's definitely worth it! Use an alcohol content calculator to dilute the limoncello to your desired proof. The longer this rests, the mellower it gets.

Time P10DT9h7m

Yield 70

Number Of Ingredients 7

1 (1.75 liter) bottle 190 proof grain alcohol (such as Everclear®)
20 lemons, zested, or more to taste
1-gallon jug
7 cups water
7 cups white sugar
coffee filters
6 clean wine bottles with corks

Steps:

  • Combine alcohol and lemon zest in a 1-gallon jug with a tight-fitting lid. Place in a cool, dark place to rest for 1 month. Swirl contents of the jug every few days.
  • Combine water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat; stir until sugar is fully dissolved. Set simple syrup aside to cool completely, 15 to 30 minutes.
  • While simple syrup is cooling, place a sieve over a large bowl and line with coffee filters. Strain alcohol mixture through coffee filters to remove all sediment. Replace the filters as needed until all the mixture has been filtered. Filter one more time to ensure all sediment has been removed. Discard coffee filters and zest.
  • Add enough simple syrup to the alcohol mixture to reach the desired alcohol-by-volume percentage; refer to an alcohol content calculator.
  • Divide limoncello among 6 wine bottles. Seal with corks. Allow to rest in a cool, dark place for 1 month, swirling every few days. Strain one more time to remove any leftover sediment if desired.
  • Place 1 bottle of limoncello in the freezer and serve icy-cold. Store remaining bottles at room temperature.

HOMEMADE LIMONCELLO



HOMEMADE LIMONCELLO image

Categories     Fruit     Dessert

Yield 2 bottles

Number Of Ingredients 6

15 lemons*
2 bottles (750 ml) 100-proof vodka**
4 cups sugar
5 cups water
Choose thick-skinned lemons because they are easier to zest.
** Use 100-proof vodka, which has less flavor than a lower proof one. Also the high alcohol level will ensure that the limoncello will not turn to ice in the freezer.

Steps:

  • Wash the lemons with a vegetable brush and hot water to remove any reside of pesticides or wax; pat the lemons dry. Carefully zest the lemons with a zester or vegetable peeler so there is no white pith on the peel. NOTE: Use only the outer part of the rind. The pith, the white part underneath the rind, is too bitter and would spoil your limoncello. Check out my web page on How to Zest. Step One: In a large glass jar (1-gallon jar), add one bottle of vodka; add the lemon zest as it is zested. Cover the jar and let sit at room temperature for at least (10) ten days and up to (40) days in a cool dark place. The longer it rests, the better the taste will be. (There is no need to stir - all you have to do is wait.) As the limoncello sits, the vodka slowly take on the flavor and rich yellow color of the lemon zest. Step Two: In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and water; cook until thickened, approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Let the syrup cool before adding it to the Limoncello mixture. Add to the Limoncello mixture from Step One. Add the additional bottle of vodka. Allow to rest for another 10 to 40 days. Step Three: After the rest period, strain and bottle: discarding the lemon zest. Keep in the freezer until ready to serve.

TOP 10 BEST LIMONCELLO COCKTAIL RECIPES TO MAKE AT HOME

From bespokeunit.com
Estimated Reading Time 7 mins
  • Limoncello Gin Cocktail. Our first and foremost cocktail can be either quite simple or a little more elaborate depending on your mood. In either case, it’s a wonderfully refreshing concoction that can also feature a richly aromatic note.
  • Amalfi Mule. Fresh strawberries are often well-received when properly used in a cocktail. They’re fragrant, sweet, and succulent. Therefore, we were keen to sample this on by Pallini linked below.
  • Limoncello Spritz. A simple and wonderfully refreshing summer cocktail made from just three ingredients, you’ll definitely enjoy this vinous yet fizzy cocktail!
  • Cello Gimlet. An intuitive yet obvious cocktail now that we think about it, the limoncello gimlet is a great take on this classic cocktail. It’s very simple to produce and requires just two ingredients
  • Pallini Freshness In A Glass. As the name suggests, we also found this recipe through Pallini on their Instagram profile linked below. It combines limoncello with bitters and tonic water, which just takes the edge of the sweetness with a bitter bouquet.
  • L.B.B. (Lemon Basil Blueberry) Here’s an elaborate and opulent cocktail that offers rich fruity flavours and a thick, syrupy mouthfeel! We discovered it through Fabrizia and looked forward to trying it for ourselves.
  • Oriental Lemon. We found this soothing and aromatic cocktail through Knight Gabriello, the creators of Limoncello Santoni, and just love the combination of exotic fruits, herbs, and spices.
  • Limoncello Sorbet. Although this recipe isn’t a cocktail, it’s definitely worth trying to make limoncello sorbet as it’s a fantastic summertime treat!
  • Peroni Limone. Here’s a great way to add sweet zestiness to beer as well as a pleasant kick. The result is a refreshingly fizzy beverage that’s quick and easy to make.
  • Good Luck Charm. Our final refreshing cocktail places a strong emphasis on lemon, which is then mellowed with a shot and a half of bourbon whisky. If you like zesty cocktails with a kick, this one is a great option.

  • Wash the lemons by scrubbing them with the rough side of a sponge. Dry them with a paper towel or tea towel.
  • Peel the lemons with a vegetable peeler, taking extra care to not leave too much pith (the white part of the lemon skin) on the peel. Too much pith will make the limoncello bitter.
  • Store the jar in a cool dark place out of direct light (like a closet). Let the alcohol infuse for 30 days. Every few days, shake the mixture up a bit so the lemon peels move around.

10 LIMONCELLO COCKTAILS FEATURING THE CITRUS LIQUEUR

From thespruceeats.com
  • Easy Bourbon Tea. Use limoncello to put the "sweet" in your summer sweet tea. This bourbon tea recipe is delightfully simple, requiring nothing more than bourbon, limoncello, and iced tea.
  • In & Out Lemontini. The in and out lemontini is one of the best ways to enjoy limoncello and your favorite vodka at the same time. This recipe simply rinses a cocktail glass with the sweet liqueur, then adds shaken vodka, leaving you with an incredibly quick vodka martini kissed with citrus.
  • Sparkling Shamrock. The bright taste of limoncello is ideal for softly flavored spring cocktails. The fruity, floral freshness of the sparkling shamrock is a fine place to use it.
  • Lemon Cake. The lemon cake recipe is one of those dessert cocktails that limoncello is famous for and it's incredibly simple. If you have a bottle of RumChata and one of limoncello, that's all you need.
  • Good Luck Charm. An intriguing bourbon cocktail, this one is for the truly dedicated lemon lover. The good luck charm puts a very flavorful whiskey against both limoncello and lemon sour (a lemon-only version of sour mix).
  • Tuscan Pear. When you're ready for an adventure in flavor, the Tuscan pear is a great choice. This cocktail recipe begins with pear vodka, limoncello, and orange juice before adding a fantastic ginger snap.
  • Somrus Fizz. Somrus is an Indian cream liqueur with a hint of nutty flavor that creates some tasty cocktails, including the Somrus fizz. The recipe mixes it with gin and egg white for a cocktail similar to the classic New Orleans fizz.
  • Devil's Punch. The devil's punch brings limoncello into the world of tequila. It's similar to the margarita, using the lemon liqueur to add a tantalizing twist to the tequila, orange liqueur, and sour mix.
  • Lavender Lemon Drop. The lavender lemon drop is a perfect example of where you can use limoncello as a substitute. The floral vodka martini typically uses lemon juice and simple syrup individually, but you can simply pour 1 1/4 ounces of limoncello instead.
  • Vodka Lemon Sorbet. Limoncello can become part of the dessert in this vodka lemon sorbet recipe. All you have to do is replace the sorbet's lemon juice with limoncello and switch to a plain simple syrup.
