Homemade Limoncello question

grrlscout | Apr 26, 2007 09:00 AM

I have the zest of 20 lemons soaking in a bottle's worth of Everclear. It's been infusing for a week now.

Problem is, I just came across a recipe that looks more like what I'm going for (traditional, with plenty of end product):

I actually have another bottle of Everclear, ready to go. Would it be a bad thing to pop open that jar, pour it in, and let it soak for another week? Is that enough time for the lemony-goodness to soak into that johnny-come-lately alcohol?

Also, as far as a cool, dark place... would the fridge be too cool? The pantry too warm? I live in AZ, so the house is never particularly cool.

I don't know if I can commit to shaking the jar twice a day for 3 weeks. Other recipes say just to pop in the freezer after adding the syrup. Do I HAVE to add jar-shaking to my daily schedule?
