On May 13, De Laurentiis posted a gorgeous, vibrant photo of a fresh and simple cocktail to her Instagram page @thegiadzy. She posted it with the caption, “Do as they do on the Amalfi Coast and make a batch of limoncello! It’s so easy to make an appetizer, there’s nothing like an iced shot of it before dinner in the spring and summer.”

For that perfect summertime cocktail, you only need four ingredients, and the stars of the show are a handful of lemon and vodka. Doing this recipe is as simple as it gets. Even if this is the first recipe you ever follow, you can do it easily.

You start by peeling lemons using a vegetable peeler and within no time, filter your homemade limoncello through a mesh strainer.

Something to keep in mind is that you can seal lemons in bottles for at least four hours before serving. Then you can save this drink for up to a month!
