Hi,

Serious Eats has a discussion of infusions that includes a wonderful idea for straining. It is a real pain in the --- to strain limoncello through a coffee filter or cheesecloth. Their suggestion:

    Strain limoncello through an AeroPress.

I cannot wait.

Tim

Forgive my ignorance...how is an AeroPress different from a French Press?

Amy,

AeroPress uses small paper filters with an air press to move the liquid. The result is finer filtration than a French press and faster filtering than a paper coffee filter.

These cheap plastic coffee makers really do produce a wonderful cup.

I find that using strips of lemon peel (without the pith, by using a potato peeler) instead of microplaned, is easier and you still get the oils from the rind.

I do it exactually as Phoenix described using a potato peeler and a light touch to be sure not to get any of the pith.. ....straining is not so difficult

Okay, so since I was not going to a grocery store yesterday just for lemons I bought a huge bag at Costco when I only needed 2. Thinking of making limoncello but have no regular vodka. What are thoughts on making it with a flavoured vodka?
We have several and never drink them. I have raspberry, cranberry, espresso, mango, peach, and chocolate vodkas.

That's a lot of flavored vodkas...which begs the question, why so many if you don't drink them?

I'd say you have nothing to lose to try it. I'd try the raspberry.

Amy, it's a great question. Hubby hates to go through duty free empty handed! I *think* the idea was that we would have lots of different martinis, but then realized we don't really like martinis. If I get out of this bathrobe today will try it.
