Well, 30 days past pretty quickly and now it’s time for the second step of the limoncello making process. (See Step 1 here).
First, you have to make simple syrup using a liter of water and 750 grams of sugar. This is pretty easy. Just put the sugar in warm water and heat. Do not boil. Stir until it is dissolved and then let it cool completely.

Pull your jar of limoncello from its dark hiding place and unseal it. Pour the cooled syrup and the rest of the alcohol (300 ml) into the jar with the peels and alcohol that has been sitting. Notice the beautiful yellow color.
Reseal and cover in foil, and put back into the dark hiding place for 40 more days! I can’t wait!
