Limoncello

(Lemon Liqueur)
True limoncello is produced in Sorrento, Italy, and served well-chilled in the summer months as an after-dinner drink. With its simple ingredients, it's easy to make, but requires patience—it takes several weeks until the final product is ready to drink. This recipe was adapted from Naples at Table: Cooking in Campania by Arthur Schwartz (HarperCollins,1998). We suggest using organic lemons.
