LIMONCELLO, BRO

Hey! I made my own Limoncello! Homemade! …well, I guess I didn’t distill the vodka… and I didn’t grow the lemons… and I guess I didn’t gather the honey, either…

Ok, so I didn’t really do THAT MUCH, but I did wait a whole friggin week for this stuff, and with my attention span, that’s saying something.

So what did I do? How did I do it?? Well, as I mentioned, my attention span is only about this (___) big, so I LOOSELY followed Alton Brown’s recipe. You gotta strip them lemons of all their yellow…

You gotta use a whole bottle of vodka… (I guess it only makes sense when Limoncello is certainly an Italian drink, but I really had no idea vodka was made in Italy) So yeah, I used Italian vodka. Makes sense. And then you gotta WAIT seven freaking days. Oh yeah, it’s supposed to be 100 proof vodka.

…Ok, look, I’ll just link the goddam recipe and if anyone actually cares, you can just follow that. I’m sick of typing. Do you know how hot it is here? Anyhow, you’ve seen the before pictures, here’s some after shots…

If you're not drinking your hard liquor out of espresso cups, I don't know what you're doing.

Is it safe for human consumption?

Uh-oh.

Uh-oh.

Is it radical?

Hahaha it's fucking decent. It made me laugh out loud how ridiculously drinkable it is. RECOMMENDED. Oh, but I used honey instead of sugar.
