|Ready in 10 days!|
|~My Dad as a boy in Ischia~|
10 lemons (zest removed in strips- no pith- you will need a regular vegetable peeler for this)
1 bottle good vodka (750 ml)
3 ½ cups water
2 ½ cups sugar
Peel your lemons with a vegetable peeler. Make sure to not get the white pith.
Place zest in a 2 qt. pitcher
Pour vodka over
Cover and steep (room temp) for 4 -45days! 4 days is enough but longer is better, we have found that 10 days is perfect. Keep in a dry cool place like the pantry and shake once a day.
Stir the sugar & water over medium heat until dissolved
Pour over lemon/vodka mixture
Strain zest out and transfer to bottles
Store in fridge or freezer
Serve cold in chilled shot glasses
