Lemon Digestif

You can dilute the alcohol content by using more simple syrup but the end result will be sweeter. I make limoncello every year as a Christmas gift. My Italian friends get the stronger version made with Everclear and the sweeter simple syrup (2:1 sugar:water ratio). We keep the lighter version made with vodka and thinner simple syrup (1:1 sugar:water ratio).
