vodka, divided
8 - 10
Meyer lemons, washed and quartered
2 cups
2 cups
granulated sugar


  • DIVIDE 1 cup vodka between 2  500-mL glass jars. Pack lemons very firmly into the jars. Seal, then let jars sit in a cool, dark place for at least 14 days and up to a month, turning and gently shaking jar once a day.
  • STRAIN lemons, reserving liquid. Transfer lemons to a large pot with water and sugar. Set over medium-high and cook until liquid is syrupy, about 15 min. Cool mixture and strain into the reserved liquid.
  • ADD remaining 2 cups vodka. Pour limoncello into clean bottles. Keep in the freezer until ready to serve.
