Home made Limoncello
8 Unwaxed lemons
1 litre vodka
250g/oz white sugar
Begin by carefully taking the peel off the lemons very thinly do not use any of the white pith as ths is bitter and ruins the flavour.Alternatively use a grater to take off the lemon skin.
Combine with the vodka in a kilner type jar with a lid and leave to stand and infuse for about a month the posh name is to macerate.
Once the flavour has imparted into the vodka add the sugar, stirring or shaking daily until it has completely dissolved.
Strain I use coffee paper filters to take away any sediment, and or peel if in strips, decant into screw top bottles and store in the freezer. Always serve this well chilled.
