Our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club for the month of February is all about puckering up ~ for Valentines Day.
Puckering up with Lemons that is.
I went to Cooking Light and found This Recipe for Limoncello ~ I have made MADE LIMONCELLO BEFORE, but was glad to find this new recipe. MY ORIGINAL RECIPE is different, so I will give this lighter version a try.
4 cups vodka
1/2 cup lemon rind strips (about 7 lemons)
3 cups water
1 1/2 cups sugar
Combine vodka and rind in a bowl. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 2 weeks. Strain through a sieve into a bowl; discard solids.
Combine 3 cups water and 1 1/2 cups sugar in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, and cool to room temperature. Add to vodka mixture.
Divide limoncello evenly among 3 sterilized (750-milliliter) bottles, and seal.
Note: Store in the refrigerator up to 1 year.
So much for the OVER- Simplified Cooking Light directions . . .
Now, carefully peel the lemons until you have Only the Yellow part.
Combine with the cooled simple syrup.
Now, pour into individual bottles and seal.
This won't last a year around here!
Now . . . let's see what everyone else has brought for our Valentine Pucker ~ lemmony feast.
