What Is the Best Way to Make Limoncello?

Good Questions

Q: I would like to make limoncello, and have looked at several recipes. So far it seems the only thing most recipes agree upon is that you should use lemons, sugar and alcohol. The recipes I've found vary so greatly that I'm not sure how to get the best results. Some say to let the lemon peel soak in alcohol for 4-5 days, while other say it should soak for 40+ days. Some say to use pure grain alcohol, while others say use vodka, or even both.

The more research I do, the more confusing it gets. Do you or other readers have any advice?
