Day 90—Limoncello Day 46

After steeping the zest of 30 Meyer lemons in 2 bottles of 151 proof grain alcohol for 46 days, today I added a little over two quarts of simple syrup to the golden liquid that I had strained through coffee filters and then squeezed out every last drop. The clear golden liquid turned an opaque lemony yellow when the two liquids combined and it was limoncello! Then I poured this precious elixir into seven 500ml bottles, snapped on the flip caps and set them in a cool, dark place while the limoncello mellows; they say it should set for a year. I don’t know if I can wait that long!
