- 5 Lemons
- ½ Bottle Brugal Especial Rum ( 1 Liter)
- 2 cups Water
- 1 ½ Cups of Sugar in the Raw
Heat the water and sugar in a medium size saucepan over medium heat until the mixture boils and keep it at a slow boil for about 5 minutes. Pour the sugar syrup over the rum mixture. Cover and let stand at room temperature overnight. Strain the Rum Limoncello through a mesh strainer into bottles. Dispose of the peels and seal the bottle, place in the refrigerator for about least 4 hours, it lasts for up to 1 month.
It takes some time to make this, but the extra good flavor is worth the time. Patience is the key and let all the steps run their course.
The difference is really noticeable.
