How to Make Limoncello

A. J. Rathbun, author of CHOW-approved cocktail books Good Spirits and Luscious Liqueurs, has an easy recipe for homemade limoncello. It’s just lemon peels, grain alcohol, and rich simple syrup. Then let the mixture sit for a few weeks, giving it a shake every so often. Minimal effort, maximum pleasure. Rathbun’s most recent book is Dark Spirits.
