    24 lemons
    1.5 liters 100-proof vodka (or something similar)
    simple sugar

    Peel lemons and place peels and vodka in a gallon container. Store in a cool, dark place for at least 3 weeks.

    (I juice the lemons. The juice is good for a week if stored in the fridge and a good deal longer if you make lemon-juice ice cubes and use as needed).

    For the simple sugar, I use 5-6 cups of sugar and an equal amount of water. Boil together until the sugar dissolves.

    Remove from heat and let cool.

    Remove the lemon peels from your gallon container and discard them. I attach a colander to a large bowl and simply empty the bottle.

    Add simple sugar to bowl, stir, and add entire contents back to gallon container. I use a ladle and funnel. Store at least one more week in cool, dark place.

    At this point, you can pour your limoncello into smaller bottles and store in your freezer or fridge.

    I don't bottle the entire recipe at once but do so as it's needed. I keep the gallon jug in a cool, dark place.

    How about I believe in the unlucky ones?
