How to Make Italian Limoncello
Remove the skins of two lemons, ideally without taking the white part, and put them to infuse in alcohol in a jar that can be hermetically sealed. Leave it for 7 days.
On the seventh day, dissolve the sugar in a liter and a half of water over heat and after you have infused the zest, pour the mixture of water and sugar into the infused alcohol which in the meantime will have turned yellow or green [from the zest]. Leave it to rest for two or three days and finally filter it.
