1 bottle (750ml) Vodka
10 lemons (I used organic)
1 C. Honey
3.5 oz Water
1. Wash lemons thoroughly, pat dry. Zest lemons, you want the yellow part of the skin, and as little of the white pith underneath as possible (the pith makes it bitter). Put lemon zest into a seal-able container (preferably glass, I used a half gallon mason jar although it was only filled about halfway at the end).
2. Add vodka, honey, and water to the lemon zest. Seal the container tightly and shake the mixture until the honey is completely dissolved. Allow to infuse in a cool, dark place for 30-40 days. Shake mixture once a day for the first 4-5 days. Strain mixture, chill the liquid slightly and enjoy!
Notes: If the end product is not sweet enough for you, feel free to add more honey.
