I love this recipe because Limoncello is so expensive you can make your own for a fraction of the cost. You don't need to use really expensive vodka either.

You can add it to chicken dishes, ice tea for a grown up taste or of course just for sipping over ice.

I actually give some away in decorative bottles as gifts at Christmas time. Takes a little time to make, but so worth it. Enjoy!
