Home made Limoncello

I know that there are threads already talking about home made limoncello and I have read them. My problem is that when I made my first batch, it froze when it went in the freezer. I am looking for any ideas on maybe why it would of frozen? I used what the recipe said, 2 cups of Alchool and let it sit for 10 days with lemons then 2 cups water, and 2.5 cups sugar.

Would the Alchool burn off if when i poured the simple syrup mixture into the alchool the syrup was still warm? Should I be using maybe vodka or gin instead of alchool? and only mix the syrup and alchool/gin/vodka at room temperature?
