Limoncello—a sexy sipping drink!
Wash your lemons and dry them well. Remove the peels with your vegetable peeler. Be careful to ONLY peel the rind and NOT the pith (white portion). Place the lemon peels into a large glass container with an wide mouth and an airtight lid. Pour the alcohol on top and seal it with a lid. Keep the container in a cool, dry dark place. Shake it once a day for approximately 10 days.
On the 11th day, boil the water and the sugar, stirring often until well combined, making a simple syrup. Let it cool completely.
Remove the lemon peels from your jar and discard. Strain the liquid with a sieve or coffee filter. Combine the two liquids together. Pour them into the desired bottles and leave them for at least one month before consuming.
Limoncello is best served chilled.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
