The Limoncello's Done, or True Love Waits Patiently for a Miracle

Ever wondered what 3 months of waiting looks like?

1 (750 mL) bottle of vodka
Lots of lemons (12 or so)
3 c sugar
3 c water

Peel the lemons. Put them in the vodka and leave it in a cool, dark place for 4-6 weeks.
Strain the vodka. Make a syrup of the sugar and water, add it, and leave it for a another month or so.

We at A Book of Cookrye featured a lot of cutting peels off of lemons because Mike made limoncello. After 3 months, it finally finished sitting in the back corner of the closet.
Why on Earth does it look greenish?

And... it turns out he was right to do so! This is amazing! It tastes like spiked lemonade only even more so. If you have the space in the back corner of some cabinet or closet to leave a bottle to sit for a while, you should try this. Happy Friday, everyone!
