If you wish to make a real and incredible Limoncello, better than what you can buy from a liquor store, you need to use high-proof alcohol (no less than 90% in strength). The commonly made mistake is using ordinary vodka instead. In order to extract the essential oils & flavours from the lemon zest, only strong alcohol must be used, no less than 90% strength. It must be top quality Food grade alcohol, such, for example, as Grain or Cane sugar, but if you want to adher to the Italian traditions – then use only wine distilled alcohol.
