homemade limoncello dixie



    1. Wash lemons with hot water and pat dry.
    2. Carefully zest lemons with a vegetable peeler taking care that you don't have any pith on the peeler as it is very bitter and will ruin the limoncello.
    3. Put lemon peels in a clean mason jar and fill jar with vodka. Place a lid on the jar and store in a dark, cool place for at least 10 days and up to 3 weeks. 
    4. After vodka/lemon mixture has sat for determined amount of time, drain off vodka and discard lemon peels. 
    5. Meanwhile, prepare a simple syrup by combing sugar and water in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves and syrup slightly thickens, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let come to room temperature.
    6. Stir simple syrup and lemon infused vodka together and then bottle into decorative jars or pint size mason jars. 
    7. Store limoncello in the freezer until ready to use.
