This would have to be one of the best drinks. Keep it in the freezer (it won't freeze) for a cool refreshing drink. We make it here at home and I have a batch brewing as we speak. It will be another couple weeks before it is ready but it is well worth the wait. And make sure you use unwaxed lemons, preferably organic.

Sorry I haven't been here too often for the last few days, finally I got a chance to take a look back at this thread.... yeah, as Candocook suggested, it is okay to do that but if you add fresh lemon peels just as you serve them, it would be much better esthetically, and flavour wise.

The Lemoncello recipes above are all great. Like most recipes there are small
differences. We brought this recipe back from Naples Italy when visiting:

7 lemons (yellow skin only)
1 quart of 100% Vodka

Put lemon peels & vodka in a container. Let sit 36 hours. Strain.

Make a simple syrup: l cup sugar 1 cup water (boil and cool)

Add to your lemon peels and vodka

let stand 24 hours. Strain, bottle put in freezer. Serve ice cold.

We bought fancy bottles and gave them as Holiday Presents this year.

Thanks everyone for the Lemoncello recipes.

I love Lemoncello and hope to make it soon.

Looks interesting and easy to make.

Ive always wanted an alcohol that would get me drunk quickly but that I could endure or even enjoy the taste
