Limoncello Cocktail Recipe

Limoncello is a classic Italian digestif from Southern Italy made by macerating lemon peels in alcohol for up to a month, then adding it to sugar water. For this quick version, I use Lemon Vodka made in a whipping siphon. The final product is a little less rounded than the original, but it's a great substitute if you have a hankering for limoncello and don't want to wait several weeks.

Feel free to alter the amount of sugar and water you add to account for your taste. Some people prefer a sweeter limoncello and others like it dryer.
