Once a year, or so, I make a batch of Limoncello. This started because my oldest daughter fell in love with the stuff she had in Italy. Most of the restaurants there make their own. So when she requested a decanter and glassesfor her birthday a few years ago, I decided to try my hand at making it.
I looked up a dozen or so recipes on the Internet and sort of took bits and pieces from each to decide on how I would do it. I started a new batch and was talking about it online with friends and family. One asked me for the recipe today. (Everyone else just laid claim to the batch in progress!)
I really didn’t have a recipe, so I sent her this email today!
Everyone does this a little differently. Some use vodka. Some use more or less water and sugar. Some only let it rest for a week or so. Here is what I do.
