Ingredients
  • 6 unwaxed lemons
  • 1 lime
  • 1 litre Asda London Dry Gin
  • Few sprigs rosemary
  • 750g caster sugar
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 140C/120C Fan/Gas 1. Wash a glass jar or glass bottle in hot, soapy water, then rinse well. Remove any rubber seals, then put in the oven on its side for 30 minutes.

  • Using a vegetable peeler, thinly pare the zest from the fruit. Put in the jar with the gin and sprigs of rosemary. Cover tightly and leave in a dark cupboard for a week, shaking every few days. Discard the rosemary.

  • Put the sugar in a pan with 500ml water and heat gently until the sugar dissolves. Leave to cool for 20 minutes. Add to the gin mixture, cover tightly and shake.

  • Put in the cupboard for 2 weeks, shaking every few days. Strain the liquid through a coffee filter paper into a jug. Pour into sterilised bottles, adding a few strips of the lemon and lime zest to each, then seal.

  • The limon-ginno should keep for 1-2 months.
