Limoncello, third and final step!

18 Jul

Here it is… the third (and final) installment of the Limoncello series. It’s my personal favorite part – the drinking!

Step One

Step Two

Assuming you followed steps one and two, you should be left with a couple bottles of stuff in your freezer. I’ve seen some sources that say you can drink it right away and others saying you should wait between 30 and 45 days for it to mellow and for the flavors to come together. I am personally of the belief that it is just sugar, water, alcohol, and lemon, so let’s not really waste more months waiting around.

I’d say I waited about two weeks before I became too impatient and started drinking it. You can enjoy it alone, or make it into a mixed drink. Just watch out – even though it tastes like candy, it is super duper potent. Enjoy!
