Limoncello: Step Two

You'll need some pure alcohol. Dee's recipe calls for 190 proof Everclear. When you go to BevMo and ask for this, they'll act like you're a criminal: "We're not allowed to sell 190 proof in California!"

"Where can I get it then?"

"There are only 2 states in the country that allow it to be sold!"

Tom made it clear we weren't going out of state, so we settled for 151 proof. Still, the label warns Extremely Flammable Handle with Care so maybe it will work.
