Limoncello Part II

Monday, June 6, 2011

If you recall Mr. Schwartz and I started making our Limoncello on April 24th. After zesting the lemons (15 to be exact) and mixing with 100 proof vodka, the mixture was placed in a cool, dark place as directed. The directions also suggested that the mixture sit for 20-45 days. We waited 42 days. Summer is coming and we are itching to drink/use some of this Limoncello!
Musical Selection: The Thong Song by the Glee Cast. Seriously DIED laughing when I heard this song today. Thought I'd share with you as well...I mean it's summer after all. Also please note that to hear this musical snack (and all music going forward) you will have to go to the bottom of the page and click play. I figured this is a little more user friendly for those who check out the blog while "working" or just in general.

Start by combining the sugar and water in a large sauce pan. Simmer for 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and let syrup cool.

Stir to combine.
Add syrup to the Limoncello mixture.
Cover and let rest (in a dark cool place) for an additional 10-40 days….lets see how long we last this time!
