Limoncello

What Is

Limoncello is a liqueur symbolizing the Amalfi coast in the Gulf of Naples, which has become famous worldwide. Fresh and fragrant, it is made by macerating lemon peels in alcohol. In addition to being served after meals as a “digestive,” it is often used in the preparation of desserts and creams.

How To

The lemons used in limoncello must be untreated, and the peel (without the bitterish white part) should be thoroughly cleaned and left to infuse with the alcohol for at least 6 days in an airtight jar. In the meantime, a syrup of water and sugar is prepared, and then, when the 6 days have gone by, the alcohol in which the peels were macerating is filtered and added to the syrup. They are mixed together and the liqueur obtained is poured into glass bottles and hermetically sealed. It can be drunk one month after it has been prepared. 

Italian Tradition

True limoncello uses lemons sourced from the Amalfi Coast between Vico Equense and Massa Lubrense, or from the island of Capri. The quality of the lemons from this beautiful area is due to the intense aroma and unmistakable taste of this liqueur, which is quite easy to make at home, too. Limoncello is also good for soaking a birthday cake or flavoring a cream like lemon curd, but it is traditionally consumed at the end of meals. 

How To Keep It Fresh

When ready, like other homemade liqueurs, limoncello can be kept for a long time in tightly closed bottles, ideally refrigerated, ready to be served cold or to be added to the classic lemon sorbet. It can also be kept in the freezer to be served ice cold.
