Impressive....those labels make it look like ya bought it off the shelf.

It was remarkably close to exactly 11 bottles. Daughter was helping me and dumped out the extra that filled a funnel, would have made about 1 drink and that's it.

But even fancier now- I went with Lou's suggestion and put the shrink toppers on. Looks even more fancy and official (if you ignore the crappy shrinking job!).Click image for larger version

The suspects in the MGC capper even had a bottle of Limoncello with them.

So now- what is limoncello supposed to taste like? When I had it (my one time) at the Macaroni Grill, it was sweet, very lemony and didn't burn or even warm you going down - it had an alcohol after taste, but wasn't overbearing.

What I seem to have made is more of liquor and burns a bit and definitely warms your chest going down. Honestly, it's a more of an alcohol taste to drinking it than I expected.

Any descriptions of yours?

Ha! Nah, she didn't pour out any more than I spilled while filtering and then bottling it. I really need to try cheese cloth- the coffee filters go so slow!

How many lemons are you using? You might want to add more water and sugar. Tweek it to your liking, I like it less sweet. Just remember how much of each ingredient you used. It will also get smoother the long it ages. I have a batch I made 2 years ago thats as smooth as silk.

Ok, I'll definitely let it sit. We have all of the bottles in the freezer.

I used 15 lemons. I do have the measurements as I followed the instructions pretty closely.

BEST to taste test before bottling.

As described it is an after dinner shot to clean the palate. It is lemony and strong. My recipe works it out at about 120 proof.

If that is too "forte" for you, you can dilute it a little at a time till it is more to your liking. A caution though, it must never fall below about 60 proof or it will FREEZE in the freezer.
