How To Make Limoncello

Limoncello is an Italian lemon liqueur. The best part is that you can actually make limoncello at home with ease.


(Serve 4)

  • Limoncello:

  • Fresh Organic Lemon, 2

  • Flavorless Vodka, 125ml

  • Caster Sugar, 125g

  • Filtered Water, 375ml


  • Sterilized Air Tight Jar / Bottle


  1. Using a potato peeler, peel the skin from the lemons.

  2. *Do not peel off the membrane (white part of the skin) as it will leave a bitter taste.*

  3. In a jar, add in vodka and lemon peels.

  4. Cover and set aside in a cool place for at least 3 days.

  5. After 3 days, your vodka should turn yellowish in color.

  6. Drain the mixture thru a fine strainer lined with cheesecloth into another air-tight jar.

  7. In a bowl, add in sugar and filtered water.

  8. Stir to combine well and until the sugar has dissolved.
