Peel the lemons being sure to remove any pith on the back of the lemon peels.
Place the lemon peels into a quart mason jar and cover with the vodka.
Allow to steep 2 to 4 weeks.
After steeping make a simple syrup by placing the water and sugar into a sauce pan and heating on medium until all the sugar crystals have dissolved.
Remove the pot from the heat source and allow the simple syrup to cool.
Strain the lemon peels into a larger glass pitcher or bottle.
Add the simple syrup and mix.
Cover the Limoncello with plastic wrap or a lid.
Chill in the refrigerator over night before transferring to individual bottles for gifts or storage.
Stored in the freezer the homemade limoncello will keep for a year.
