Liquore di Limette Recipe

Prep Time 30 mins
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 2 1/2 quarts


  • Rind of 6 limes
  • 4 cups grain alcohol
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 4 cups water
  • Juice of 2 limes strained


  • Scrub the limes with a vegetable brush, wash, and pat dry. Peel the limes using a potato peeler, taking care not to get any of the white with the peel. (The white pith will make the liquid bitter.)
  • Put peels in a large jar with a tight-fitting lid. Add the alcohol. Close tightly and set in a cool, dark place (free from sunlight) for 7 days.
  • When the 7 days are up, remove the peels and strain the mixture through cheesecloth 2 or 3 times until the liquid is clear.
  • Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring liquid to a simmer. Heat until sugar completely dissolves and is clear. Add lime juice and stir.  Let cool. Add the infused alcohol. Store in the freezer until ready to serve.
