Limoncello, day I

Just like this.

15 backyard Meyer lemons
1 750-ml bottle vodka (Smirnoff, 80-proof)
1 750-ml bottle Everclear (151-proof)
sealable glass jar large enough to hold it all

Wash and dry the lemons, then peel them with a veggie peeler and scrape off all of the white pith with a small sharp knife. It takes a while and your hand will be tired by the end, but it's not so bad. Put the peels in your big glass jar, cover with booze, seal, and stick in the pantry for about 40 days. Juice the lemons and reserve the juice for something nice.

proceed to day II
