The Zest of 12 Lemons
The Zest of 1 Orange
One Bottle of Everclear
|I washed and scrubbed the fruit before zesting|
|Wow look at all that zest|
|The zested fruit|
|I just added the Everclear and it is already yellow!|
5 Cups of Water
4 Cups of Sugar
Combine and heat until combined. Cool and strain the Everclear lemon mixture into the simple syrup.
The first thing we made with our limoncello - a basil limoncello martini. Yum!
