    Is this something that gets better with age? If I wanted to give it as a Christmas gift, would there be a benefit to making it in the summer and letting it sit in a cool basement?

      Hi Angela. There are different types of recipes for Limoncello all over internet. Some of them suggest keep it at room temperature for at least 4-6 weeks ( compared to 3 days that I suggest). Then you also have to have 100 % alcohol only.
      I used to keep mine in the fridge for 3-4 months. it changed the color ( yellow became a bit darker and “foggy” look disappeared.
      So long story short, I would suggest you to make it a week – couple weeks before giving it as a present.
      Just remember to let your gift recipients know to refrigerate their limoncello before serving it. 😉
