    I saw this recipe and thought I might try it. After reading this thread, I am thinking, how in the world could this recipe taste like lemons.

    I think on my first try, I will go with Giiatas recipe.

    Starting a 1 1/2 gallon test batch of lemon/limecello. I used the zest of 25 limes, 15 lemons and 1.75 liters of 195 proof Everclear.

    This is a bit on a tangent, but somewhat related. I recently made a batch of Moscato and reached the desired flavor and sweetness without using the entire F-pac. I hate to waste anything so I mixed the residual of the F-pac with a little simple syrup and nearly an equal volume of plain vodka. The end result is quite delicious, especially over a couple ice cubes. I know now what to do with unused F-pacs.
