When life give you lemons eat some bacon or make some Limoncello. Limoncello is an Italian liquor infused with lemon and sometimes herbs. It usually is very sweet and easy on the tongue. We just so happen to have a Meyer Lemon tree that is bursting with Limoncello material. The Meyer lemon is a sweeter lemon. It may be a cross between a Mandarin orange and a lemon. What ever the pedigree we will be mixing it with vodka and letting it steep for a month or two. Once the initial soaking of booze and citrus a simple syrup will be added. Let's infuse!
The recipe is very simple. Peel some lemon zest, pour vodka, and let rest. I will refer you to a fellow Limoncellow enthusiast. Lee Ann for the recipe. If you are using a Meyer lemon, have a gentle hand on the peeler. The skins are very thin and you do not want the pith.
