After making the sugar syrup and allowing it to cool completely...place the vodka/lemon zest mix and sugar syrup into a large container.
Mix around a bit, seal ...
...and place in a dark cupboard for the next 30 days
Now all you have to do is wait...
So far though, it's looking good!
The final process: Now I know I said you only let this stand for another day before straining and putting the mix into bottles...but I'm changing it a bit. Let the entire mix stay in the container in the back of the cupboard for a month to let the flavour intensify.
Time now to drain the Limoncello into sterilised bottles. Use a funnel lined with cheesecloth to make sure you remove all the zest
Seal the bottles, put them in a dark place or fridge and let sit for a few days until ready to drink....on Christmas Day!! The night before Christmas, put the bottle in the fridge so it's nice and chilled for the big day
