How about giving delicious and festive Limoncello this season? Wrap your final work of art in our Lemon Wine Bag and it’s the perfect gift! Here is a recipe for an easy, homemade version that we love:
1 (750-ml) bottle vodka
3 1/2 cups water
2 1/2 cups sugar
1. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the peel from the lemons in long strips (reserve the lemons for another use). Using a small sharp knife, trim away the white pith from the lemon peels; discard the pith. Place the lemon peels in a 2-quart pitcher. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Steep the lemon peels in the vodka for 4 days at room temperature.
2. 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 over the 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. Seal the bottles and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 month.
3. Place in a Driscoll Design Lemon Bag and give! Seasons Greetings!
