Limoncello-liscious

I saw this recipe for Limoncello in the Star Tribune and knew I had to try it out. My zeal for all things lemon shows no signs of abating. I borrowed my mom's new microplane zester which made the task of zesting fifteen lemons surprisingly quick and pleasant. (That incredible scent of zested lemons doesn't hurt either.) Nothing like the right tool for the job, huh?

Look at all those naked lemons! What a luxury, aren't lemons like a million dollars each right now according to Prem? In what base alcohol did you put all that zest? A lab-mate just made some using like X% everclear and Y% simple syrup. It was strong.

They weren't that expensive (or where they? It was 6 bucks for fifteen.) And I used cheap Stoley's vodka under the premise that vodka is vodka and I generally can't taste a difference. I'll be sure to post the results. Its already a gorgeous yellow color.

I really enjoy cooking but don't have too many gadgets; however I do love my microplane!

I know! They are amazing! You've got to be careful though, it would take the skin right off your knuckles!
