Want to try to make limoncello at home?⁠
A well-stocked liquor store near you may have limoncello, but traditionally you should make it at home. You’ll first want to use a vegetable peeler to remove the zest (just the yellow part) from the pith (the bitter white part) of 8 lemons. Pour one liter of 100 proof vodka or grain alcohol over the zest in an airtight bottle or jar and let steep 7-10 days. Strain the solids out using a fine strainer or cheesecloth and add 3 cups simple syrup (3 cups water and 3 cups sugar, boiled until sugar dissolves). Ta-da!
