A community recipe by

This is THE EASIEST recipe to make. As much fun as it is to drink, this Lazy Limoncello makes a fantastic gift! I call it “lazy” just because the recipe doesn’t call for special lemons and you won’t need to look for special kind of spirit – any vodka and lemons would do. You’ll love this freezing cold summery lemony yellow goodness.


Serves: 8

The Drink

  • 10 zest of lemons (peeled)
  • 1 litre vodka
  • 20 centimetres sugar (cubes)

The Simple Syrup

  • 1 glass of water
  • 1 glass of sugar

  1. Wash lemons thoroughly and peel them. Try to peel them as carefully as possible and not get any white pith. Place the peel into a glass jar, drop in the sugar cubes, pour in the vodka. Close the lid and place the jar in the dark place for minimum of 30 days.
  2. In a medium saucepan combine sugar and water. Bring to a boil, wait until sugar has dissolved. Allow to cool.
  3. Pour as much syrup as you like. The drink should be sweet. Strain into a bottle add syrup to taste and freeeezzeee along with the shot glasses. Always serve it freezing cold. Cheers :)
