      Citrus oil is highly volatile and apparently 43%abv and over is
      recommended. Peel from an average lemon (50 g) contains 0.5-0.7 gms
      of oil. Limoncello is made by steeping peel from about 6 lemons/1
      litre of 30%abv alcohol (typical liqueur strength) without cloudiness.
      See msgs 3064, 3605, 3925 for citrus.

      How does the high level of oil in the zest affect the result? Does it
      cause any
      cloudiness, like Ouzo?
