Lemon liqueur

I have a pile of lemons at our new home…I had planned to make limoncello as I did with grapefruit at our old house. But I wasn’t feeling it. I hinted around online and made a conglomerate recipe…

I actually used 6 lemons….all of them as this will be strained later.

I chopped them small/medium ish

I added 1 cup of sugar to the lemons

Then I poured in 1/2 the vodka and shook to dissolve. Then the rest of the vodka. This jar held 1/2 the bottle with the lemon bulk in it.

Soundly shaken again abs detached in a dark cabinet.

I feel like this will be far more lemony than limoncello! I’ll get back to you in 4-6 weeks

    Oh wow, I would love to make this. Does the quality of the vodka matter and could brown sugar also work? Thanks!

      I have made similar things in the past but never with brown sugar…so I’m not sure. I historically used the cheapest vodka I could find but I stepped up one shelf and got Smirnoff for this round.
