     Authentic Italian Limoncello

Category   Beverages
Sub Category   None
Servings   2.5 liters

10 medium to large lemons
1 liter of Everclear alcohol
1 1/2 liters of water (6 1/3 cups)
3 lbs of sugar (6 1/2 cups)

Wash the lemons with a vegetable brush and hot water to remove any reside of pesticides or wax; pat the lemons dry. Using a potato peeler, take all the lemon rinds off of the lemons so there is no white pith on the peel. Place the rind-peelings in a large container with the Everclar alcohol. Cover the container and let it sit for seven days. On the eight day, strain the the peels from alcohol; discard peels. In a large saucepan, make a simple syrup by combining the water and sugar; let it simmer "fast" for 15 minutes. Let simple syrup cool to room temperature. Add to alcohol. You are now finished and can drink it right away.
Serving Suggestions
Keep your bottles of limoncello in the freezer until ready to serve.
