How to Make Your Own Limoncello

Updated: Sep 26, 2021

Homemade LIMONCELLO y’all! This is such a fun little project at home to impress guest or to give as a gift!

What you need:

  • 10 organic lemons or Meyers lemons (washed and dried)

  • 1 750-ml bottle vodka (80 proof or higher)

  • 1 to 4 cups sugar, to taste (I like less sweet, so I used one)

  • Air-tight jars


1. Use a vegetable peeler to remove the peels from all the lemons.

2. Transfer the lemon peels to jar and cover with vodka.

3. Let the the mixture infuse for 4 days

4. Make a simple syrup with sugar and water over heat, to taste.

5. Strain the lemons & add the simple syrup

6. Chill for at least 4 hours before serving!

7. Cheers!!!

This will be good for one month if stored in the fridge and a year of in the freezer!

Watch this fun video to show how it is done!
