The perfect gift - but keep some for yourself !

  • Yields: 1 litre

Ingredients

Zest from 6 or 7 large lemons

1 litre of vodka

1250ml water

700g sugar

Directions

1Peel the zest from the lemons and put them into a kilner jar.

2Try to avoid the bitter white pith of the lemon skin, under the yellow zest.

3Add the vodka to the jar with the lemon zest.

4Cover the kilner jar with cling film and store it in a cool place for 7 days.

5On day 6: Boil the water and add the sugar to the boiling water.

6Stir the sugar until it is fully dissolved in the water.

7Set the sugar syrup aside to let it cool over night.

8On day 7 : Strain the lemons peels from the vodka and discard the peels.

9Pour the sugar syrup into the glass jar with the infused vodka and stir well.

10Decant into bottles for gifts

11Serve chilled, from the fridge or freezer.

12This will keep for one to two years but don't worry you'll demolish it before then

Yes it takes a week but the longer after that it's left the better it becomes
