GaARt, your wish is my command, even tho you eat peanut butter and mayo....


8 – 12 clean lemons (I used about 10 large ones)
1 quart 90% grain alcohol

Remove peel from lemons—a little pith is OK, but avoid if possible. Place peels in a large container with good closure; add grain alcohol. Leave in a cool place for a week. Gently shake container a couple times a day.

After a week:

Heat but don’t boil 2 liters of water and dissolve of 3 cups sugar in it. Assure that all sugar gets dissolved. Allow to cool.

Strain lemon peels/alcohol thru gauze or strainer. Discard peels. Mix alcohol into the sugar/water. Shake container well to mix thoroughly. Let it sit for a week or two, then…

Serve cold, and enjoy!

Sounds good mudbug,
I've been wanting to try limoncello, but my local liquor store doesn't carry it
Is grain alcohol essential, or could you use a good quality vodka to make it a bit smoother?
Just wondering?

JohnL, I have only had this from Italy and my dad's homemade stuff before he gave me the recipe. We can't get grain alcohol in VA either-hubby had to get it in PA where he works. I don't see why vodka wouldn't work.

The recipe I posted tastes pretty strong. Depends on what your tastes are, I guess. Dear papa said he has started adding more water to his batches.
