Lemons are wonderfully refreshing and are loved my people all over the world. Recently I decided I would make limoncello, the second most popular drink in Italy. I bought a bottle of vodka and 10 lemons. I zested the lemons, reserving the rest of the lemon to be used in homemade lemon pies and in my water. I love two slices squeezed into my large glasses of spring water.
Having zested the lemons, I placed the zest of five lemons in one quart bottle, and the remainder in the other quart bottle. I then measured the vodka into each quart. I shook it vigorously for 10 seconds and placed in my cupboard to be taken down and shook for 10 days. Then I will make a sugar mixture, using two cups of spring water and two cups of sugar, stirring on stove until clear. This I will divide in two and add to each quart. I will leave for a month and then freeze to be used when I need a cold refreshing drink.
