My Limoncello recipe
I've been spending some time lately on trying to make my own perfect recipe and it seems to be a popular topic so I thought I'd share.
Recipe I settled on is:
2 bottles of 95% everclear
soak microplaned zest of 28 small-medium lemons in everclear for a week or more
drain/press out everclear (may want to filter a few times with cheesecloth)
Make a simple syrup with 8 2/3rd cups of water and 6 2/3 cups sugar. (final volume of this was 2570ml)
Let syrup cool, mix throughly, bottle, serve from freezer.
Net was 5.4 bottles at 35% alcohol
