Limoncello Details

November 24, 2011 at 10:34 am (Other Drinks, Winemaking) ()

The photo to the right is the 2 liter jar I use to infuse the vodka with the lemons.  In front of that is one of the 1 liter stoppered bottles I use to store the finished product.  Both of those are from IKEA.  I have about 10 of the stoppered bottles.  A single batch fills a little more than 2 of them.

The small bottle in front is a vinegar bottle I got from the local dollar store.  It’s hard to find these in glass, they are usually plastic.  They hold like 300ml, just enough for one night of drinking.  Small is better for three reasons, it easily fits in the freezer, the smaller volumes chills faster when you need to put it in a friend’s freezer, and people don’t over-drink when there is a small amount to begin with.

I keep forgetting to post the amount of sugar.  Today I boiled the sugar/water mixture.  I use 3 cups of water and 4 cups of sugar.  Heat until it just starts to boil, then let it cool before pouring in the liquid.
