Crema de Limoncello

Title: Crema de Limoncello

From: Vanilla Garlic


10 Meyer lemons
1 (750-ml) bottle Everclear
8 1/2 cups of milk
5 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of vanilla sugar (put a vanilla bean, split, in a jar of sugar and let sit for 2 weeks)

Zest the lemons using a Micro-plane grater or another similar tool that also produce a very fine zest. Place in a jar with the Everclear and leave at room temperature for 1 week. Strain using the cheesecloth.

In a saucepan, warm the milk over medium heat. Add the sugar and the vanilla suagar and cook, stirring frequently, until dissolved. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. In a large bowl or pitcher, combine the Everclear mixture with the limoncello, funnel into bottles (which can be found at Cost Plus, or other like places) and store in the freezer for up to six months. Serve neat in a chilled tumbler or martini glass.
