Tell your guests to pucker up with some delicious limoncello. Prep this one well ahead of time – since it’s got about two and a half months of sitting time. Simply purchase mini-bottles online. Bulk you’re looking at $0.77 a piece for up to 59. They get cheaper the more you order from
Simply purchase mini-bottles online. Bulk you’re looking at $0.77 a piece for up to 59. They get cheaper the more you order from Container & Packaging Supply. Grab 2 bottles of 100 proof vodka, 20 organic lemons (trust me they don’t have waxy crap on them and taste better), 4 cups sugar, 5 cups distilled water.
Zest your lemons up; discarding the white pith as it’s too bitter for limoncello. Put the zest and vodka in an airtight container; set aside at room temperature for 10 days. Do not open it. Move it to a cool dark place on day 10 for another 40 days. Make a simple syrup. Add to container. Seal for another 30 days. Bam! Delicious limoncello.
Be A Rock Star
Create super sweet rock salt grinders with a little personal touch. Get to the internet and search wholesale bulk grinders. DHGate has some for about $1 a piece, but you may find them cheaper. Buy coarse kosher salt for about $2.50 a box. Grab a bag of dried chipotle for about $3 and chop it up. Add a mix of both to the grinder, seal, dress with a bow and gift away. Try dried lemon zest and pepper, or garlic and Himalayan salt for fun too! source
