…make liquer.

So after being falling down while I’m drunk Friday night, the last thing on my mind Saturday was alcohol.  (Um, hello, I have bad knees.  Seriously, that’s the only reason I fell down.)  But you remember that Meyer limoncello?  Yeah, well that really needed to be finished.  So not unlike any other Saturday (or Monday, or Thursday) night of my life, I broke out the vodka.

So where we last left off, I had left the zest of a dozen Meyer lemons in a bottle of 100 proof vodka to steep for two weeks.  It ended up being closer to three.  The funny thing is all I really had left to do was boil up some simple syrup and mix it with the strained vodka.  Not exactly strenuous work.  I’m lazy.  Sue me.

So after setting the simple syrup (2 c. H2O/2 c. sugar, boil gently till clear) aside to cool, I strained the zested vodka into a big bowl.  I dinked around on the computer for a bit, and figured the syrup would be cool by now.  Because I’m dumb, after the syrup had come together, I simply took it off the heat and put it on another burner to cool down.  In the hot pot I had made it in.  Like I said, because I’m dumb.  Obviously, hanging out in a hot metal pot isn’t exactly conducive to coming down to room temp.  I contemplated pouring it into a 9×13 baking dish, as the surface area exposed to the air would’ve helped, but I’m lazy and didn’t feel like washing a big pan after everything.  So I poured it into a plastic dish and smoked some crack played a couple rounds of Word Challenge (essentially the same thing).  Guess what?  15 minutes later, it was still hot. I was starting to get annoyed by now, so I rigged up an ice bath.  Crafty.

After hitting the pipe again some more lexicon expanding computer games, I said “Fuck it, I’m finishing this shit and going to bed.”  And so I did.  Syrup in vodka, stir stir, mix mix, and into bottles.  Ha, if only it was that simple.  When it came time to put it back in the bottles, I could only find an itty bitty funnel.  I’m pretty sure the capacity of the upper part was between 1/4 and 1/3 cup.  So the first cupful I poured in I did very slowly so the funnel wouldn’t overflow.  But because I poured so slowly, it all just ran down the side of the cup I was using.  So I’ve got sugared alcohol running all over the table and dripping onto the floor while I’m holding a strainer over a minuscule funnel  which is resting in a tall and skinny glass bottle.  Despite being hungover as all hell, I was about to lap up the vodka pool rapidly spreading across the table.  Yeah.  Anyway, I eventually got it all into bottles and sealed up and hidden in the back of the freezer behind some bacon.  (Since you’re adding more liquid, you’re going to need an extra bottle besides the two vodka ones.  Not so surprisingly, I had finished of a bottle of gin the night before, so I was all set to go.)  I did a half ass cleaning job, and then Goodnight Irene.  (Shitty pictures I know but eff I was tired and really didn’t care.)

One more week and I’ll finally be able to taste this shizz.  While I hope that its good, I’m also hoping it won’t be another falling down while I am drunk night.  But if it is, I will hopefully be at a bar where the sympathetic bouncer with a bum knee will carry you from the bar into the cab.

    Meleyna,

    I love this blog!!! Your sense of humor is refreshing. I feel like I’ve just spent some time with a friend that always makes me
    roll on the floor, almost wet my pants, laughing. I’m really going to look forward to your future posts. Much love and many
    blessings.

    Well good to know I’m not the only one who thinks I’m hilarious. See you around! ;)

    Great fun post — gotta get me some Meyer lemons!

    I too am really enjoying your honest sometime self-deprecating humor. I’ll bet it is a gas to hang around with you. I noticed one thing in this post:

    “So after setting the simple syrup (2 c. water/2 c. H2O, boil till clear) ”

    I figure you meant: (2 c. water/2 c. SUGAR, boil till clear)

    :)

    after getting 3 meyer lemons in the mail in cold frozen January from my dad in Southern California I had to make limoncello. No simple syrup, just sugar. And lemon zest of course. It dissolves if you shake the jars every day or so. Just broke it open today. Mighty tasty.

    Please keep commenting–you’re catching all my mistakes. Thanks! ;)

    Also, I’m sure this would be equally fantastic with regular old Eureka lemons. Start a batch now. You want it ready sooner than later, especially with things warming up!
