What is Limoncello?
A traditional Italian liquor with its delicious citrus flavour fuzzy referred for its refreshing nature. It has both tart and sweet flavour at the same time. The greatest quality of limoncello is that it aids in stimulating digestion. You can take it before or after a meal, and the best thing is that it does not have the bitterness that is characteristic of pure lemon juice.
Limoncello is a versatile drink that is served numerous ways to make some amazingly refreshing and delicious cocktails. Some of them are listed here:
- Unsweetened iced tea
- Sparkling water or club soda
- Tropical fruit punch
- Cranberry juice
The alcohol content of a limoncello varies from about 25% to 30%.
How to make limoncello at home?
Here we have detailed out a standard recipe for making limoncello. If you follow it closely, you will be able to make limoncello that tastes as good as (or even better than) ready-made limoncello.
Step 1: Choosing the Lemons:
It is always good to grab some organic lemons. We need to avoid the ones that may contain pesticides or wax as we have to use the zest for making limoncello.
Step 2: Washing the Lemons:
Though this step seems simple, it isn’t if your lemons aren’t organic. In that case, you need a vegetable brush or a plastic scrubber to remove all the stickers, wax and chemicals present on the skin.
Step 3: Zest Lemons:
Use a sharp zester to trim a thin layer of zest that does not contain even a little bit of white pith. This step is extremely crucial as any pith that reaches your limoncello will create a bitter flavour.
Step 4: Filter the liquor:
Use a water filtration pitcher. Repeat the process four times for each bottle of liquor. Aim for a 30% alcohol percentage and calculate accordingly. Use any alcohol percentage calculator if you are doing it for the first time.
Step 5: Adding zest to Liquor:
Take a one-gallon glass jar, combine zest and liquor and close the lid tightly. It is better to label your jar and record each necessary detail on it.
Step 6: Resting the infusion:
For the first week, the concoction will require several shakings, and then you can place it anywhere for a minimum of 45 days untouched.
Step 7: Filter the Infusion:
This is an essential step that gives you a clear liquid. Skipping this step results in undesirable colors, flavors and appearance. Use permanent and disposable coffee filters to carry out the filtration until you get the desired clarity.
Step 8: Adding syrup:
Boil five cups of filtered water and dissolve 3.5 cups of white sugar. This is the cheapest way to stir a simple syrup for this liquor. Add this to the liquor, and don’t forget to mark the date on the label.
Step 9: Resting again:
Now your liquor requires 45 more days of rest. This resting period helps to attain a smoother flavor in the final product.
Step 10: Bottle the Limoncello:
Before pouring in the liquor, it is always good to wash, dry and sterilize the bottles. One way of sterilizing bottles is to cover their tops with aluminum foil and bake them in the oven for one hour at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Wait for a week and serve it to your friends to amaze them. You can preserve this homemade limoncello for about a year in the freezer.
