Dear Friends, every so often we have to think about us parents and grandparents. So here is a “must have” from Nonna Marina: limoncino!
- 1/2 litre of 95° alcohol
- 1/2 litre of water
- 300 gr of sugar
- The juice of 1 lemon
- 6 peels and 16 non-treated lemon leaves
Put the peel and the leaves to marinate in the alcohol in a hermetically closed glass container for 15 days and keep it in the dark. Shake it from time to time. After 15 days, add the water mixed with lemon juice and sugar and let it rest for a day. Filter carefully (a funnel with a paper towel placed inside) and pour the limoncino into a glass bottle. Wait a month, put in the fridge and … to your health!
