Holiday Drink Italian Limoncello Cocktail

prep time: 15 minscook time: 4 hourtotal time: 4 hours and 15 mins

ingredients:

Holiday Limoncello Toast
You will need a large pitcher and double the recipe according to your guests size as this serves 8.
Cocktail Recipe:

Add :

1/2 cup vodka
1/4 cup lemon lime soda , citrus soda or seltzer
1 1/2 cups of chilled Limoncello Liqueur Italian lemon liqueor
1 cup of of fresh orange juice
1/2 cup of fresh lemon juice
Mix in a pitcher and fill glass with ice, serve with olives or fruit wedges.



NOTE : If you don't have any Limoncello, try adding 1 1/2 cups of vodka( instead of only 1/2 cup in the above drink) and 3/4 cups of simple syrup( below) to the pitcher and substitute for a similar drink of the Limoncella in the above recipe.


Simple lemon syrup
1 cup of water
1 cup of sugar
4 two inch strips of lemon peel
Boil together until dissolved with lemon peel for simple syrup

Add 1/1/2 cups of vodka and 3/4 cup of simple lemon syrup this drink.
Taste great without a mixer on the rocks also.

instructions:

Homemade Limoncello

3 1/2 cups water
10 lemons
1 750 mil liter bottle vodka
2 1/2 cup sugar

Remove the peel with a vegetable peel, making long strips of peels. Place the lemon peels a pitcher that holds at least 2 quarts or more. Pour the vodka over the peels and cover with plastic wrap. Leave this in the lemon peels with the vodka for 4 days at room temperature.

Stir the water and sugar in a large saucepan over medium heat until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Cool completely. Pour the sugar syrup over the vodka mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the limoncello through a mesh strainer. Discard the peels. Transfer the limoncello to bottles. Seal the bottles and refrigerate until cold, at least 4 hours and up to 1 month. I use clean wine bottles or older liqueor bottles cleaned out for storing.
