I have a thing for lemons. As if it wasn't already obvious from the numerous recipes I\u2019ve made featuring lemons (lemon-lime margarita pops, lemon Bundt cakes, and lemon blueberry muffins). Plus, my local farmer's market always has the most gorgeous lemons--the farmer (see image above) even cut one open for me to see just how juicy they were! My love of lemons actually started way back in college with the now infamous Bacardi Limon shots. Do you remember those? You take a shot and then immediately suck on a sugar-coated lemon wedge. Funny. Well, they quickly became infamous after one too many nights hugging the porcelain. This strange obsession remerged with my first pregnancy and carried well through my second.\u00a0Now that I\u2019m done having babies, I can think about alcohol again. I\u2019m not a huge drinker, but I won\u2019t pass up something sweet and girlie. With my love of lemons and Italian heritage in mind, I thought it would be fun to make my own limoncello. Read on to see just how easy it is to make your own. Homemade Limoncello Adapted from\u00a0Giada De Laurentiis Ingredients: 10 Lemons 1 - 750 ml bottle vodka 3 \u00bd cups water 2 \u00bd cups sugar Directions: Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the lemons in long strips. Using a small sharp knife, trim away any of the white pith from the lemon peels and discard the pith. Place the lemon peels in a 2-quart pitcher or another container. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Steep the lemon peels in the vodka for 4 days at room temperature. After four days, stir the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely. Pour the sugar syrup\u00a0 over the lemon peel and vodka mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the limoncello through a mesh strainer. Discard the peels. Transfer the limoncello to bottles or mason jars. Seal the bottles and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 month. Can I say yum? This homemade limoncello recipe is sweet and super lemony\u2014a total winner. You must try this recipe, as long as you don\u2019t mind waiting a few days to complete the process. I hope you'll give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!
