Looking for alcool puro 94 / 98% to make Limoncello

Post by EvaK on Wed Jan 07, 2015 9:39 pm

Italy...pasta...ice...espresso and LIMONCELLO <3!!
I want to make mine own Limoncello when I am at home so I can think of Italy.
Unfortunately the alcohol is hard to get and very expensive in mine country and in Italy its cheap and available in the supermarkets.

Which sweet Italian will help me with some bottles of alcool puro 94 / 98 %?
It can be send to me by post! And of course I pay first.

Also...if you have the best Limoncello receipt for me...post it here, maybe I make yours receipt :-)

Perhaps a request in Italian would be better Mad

Hi Eva,
I think you may find that if it is illegal in Holland then sending it via post will have customs confiscate it, you could use a strong Vodka to make your Limoncello, like many in the UK do, it will not be exactly the same but better than nothing.
If you use Vodka, soak the zest of 10 lemons (wash them first to remove wax, use a Vegetable peeler to take the zest off) in the vodka for 2 to 3 weeks until it is a good yellow colour, keep all the lemon juice from the lemons and keep in refrigerator.
Then mix a bag of sugar with 1 litre of water and heat until sugar dissolved. 
Add the Vodka, about 250 ml of lemon juice to the sugar water and then you will have a sort of Limoncello, not as strong but should taste OK.

Remove the Lemon rind from the Vodka
