Limoncello recipe

Limoncello

I needed Limoncello for a couple of recipes I was busting to try, but as a non drinker, the price blew me away. How can people afford to drink?
Anyway, I came across this recipe which works out to be a fraction of the cost of a bottle from my local liquor store, so thought I’d give it a try. It tastes just like the bought stuff and you can adjust the sweetness to your own taste by adding more sugar.

350 ml vodka (use a cheap brand)
4 lemon rinds
1/2 C white sugar
3/4 C water

Peel the lemons (try not to get any of the pith) and place the rinds in a metal or glass bowl. Pour the vodka over the top and cover with plastic cling wrap. Set aside for one week.

One week later:
Boil the water and add the sugar, stirring until the sugar has dissolved.

Once the sugar syrup has cooled, strain the vodka mix into a jug and stir in the sugar syrup. Mix well and pour into a bottle with a screw cap lid.
