- Pare the zest from all the lemons, taking care not to include any white pith. Put the zest in a large clean jar and pour over the vodka. Cover with a tightly fitting lid and leave for a week, shaking the jar each day.
- Put the sugar in a heatproof bowl and pour over the boiling water, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the vodka and peels and leave for a further week, shaking the jar regularly.
- Strain into decorative bottles, adding a few strips of lemon zest to each bottle.
- Grate the zest from the lemons using a Microplane grater, taking care to leave the pith behind. Place the zest in a 3-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over it and stir. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a spot where it won't be disturbed, at room temperature, and let steep 1 week.
- Combine 3 1/2 cups water and the sugar in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
- Let cool completely, then pour the syrup into the pitcher with the zest and stir. Cover tightly again and let stand for 24 hours. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve and discard the solids. Pour into clean bottles with tight-fitting caps. Refrigerate until well chilled, at least 4 hours or up to 1 month.
- 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.

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.

- 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
- 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.
