This sounds great, and I meant to ask you about it last year. I need some help with "zesting". Is the zest just the yellow part of the peel that is about 2 mm thick? 80 days away sounds like the limoncella will be ready in late August. How do you store it after that, and how do you drink it? Straight? On ice? Mixed with selzer?

OK. You already answered my last few questions. I just saw the "serve over ice" part....

The hubby and I was recently introduced to making linoncello. It's in the cabinet now. But I have been scouring the internet looking for something to do with the lemons afterward. I juiced them just like you did, and put the juice in an ice tray, and I made a lemon cake, and I made a lemon pie, but, if only it was summer I would make lemonade.

Any suggestions for use of the lemons afterwards?

If you can't wait 80 days (and I so can't!), here's a superquick faux limoncello recipe that'll tide you over while your real limoncello percolates:

12 whole lemons
1 L vodka
1.5 c sugar

Scrub lemons, halve and juice (reserving juice for another purpose). Cut squeezed lemons in half again and put in large lidded jar or pitcher. Add sugar and mix well. Add vodka and mix well (save vodka bottle). Cover and refrigerate 24 hrs. Stir and return to fridge. Repeat at least 4 days and up to a week until sugar dissolves. Strain into bowl, pressing lemons to extract all liquid. Decant into vodka bottle.

Keeps 3 wks in fridge/indefinitely in freezer.
