Prepare the ingredients before making Limoncello in your home. Then, follow these steps below to serve Limoncello for your family or friends.

Ingredients: Limoncello

  • Ingredients
  • 12 medium size lemons
  • 1 750-ml bottle of high proof vodka (140+ proof)*
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 3 cups of boiling water
  • Hardware
  • 1 2-quart mason jar with lid and ring

How to Make Limoncello

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 10 steps you must follow to make Limoncello in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Scrub the lemons under running water to remove any pesticides and particulate matter.
  • Step 2
  • Add to a 2 quart mason jar the vodka.
  • Step 3
  • With a vegetable peeler, peel wide strips of zest from the 12 lemons. Try to avoid the white pith as much as possible. (As you can see from the photo below, I need to work on my peeler skills. :-(
  • Step 4
  • Add the lemon peels to the vodka and seal the jar with the lid and ring. Let it stand for 2 to 4 weeks. 2 weeks will yield a very good lemoncello. However, 4 weeks will yield a superior product with more complex flavors.
  • Step 5
  • Whenever you decide your limoncello is ready for consumption, create a simple syrup by adding the sugar to boiling water. Stir until all the sugar has dissolved into the water. Let the syrup cool.
  • Step 6
  • Add the syrup to the mason jar and stir to incorporate.
  • Step 7
  • Store in refrigerator for 1 day. Strain out the lemon peels and bottle.
  • Step 8
  • Keep your limoncello in the freezer to serve ice cold shots. It will not freeze. You can store it for up to 3 months, but I doubt it lasts that long.
  • Step 9
  • Cin cin!
  • Step 10
  • * Originally I made this with Everclear. It did not taste as good as the limoncello that my parents made. Mine had a harsh taste to it. After checking with my parents, I found out that they used a high proof vodka such as, "Devil's Springs". My advice would be to steer clear of the Everclear. There is a reason that stuff is only 13 bucks a bottle.
