Meyer Lemon Limoncello
2 1/2 pounds Meyer lemons
10 lemon leaves
1 liter distilled spirits (90 to 95% pure spirits)
1 1/2 pounds sugar
34 ounces water
Wash the lemons and leaves; with a potato peeler remove the rind from the lemon (take care to only remove yellow skin and non of the white pith)
Place lemon rind, leaves and alcohol in a sealed jar and let it soak for two or three weeks.
Toward the end of the two/three weeks put sugar and water in a pan, let it boil for 4 minutes and let it cool.
Mix everything, remove the lemon rind and filter the mixture through a coffee paper filter or washed cheesecloth.
Pour into bottles and place in freezer. In few hours the limoncello is ready to be served.
