It’s that time of year again! Well, actually, it’s been “that time” for over a month now, but I was late in finding organic lemons.
For pure summertime alcoholic enjoyment, you’ll need:
6-7 lemons, preferably organic, as it’s only the peels you’ll be using
1 liter of good vodka
4 cups of water (about 1 liter)
4 cups of sugar
Peel the lemons, but only get the yellow part. Put the peels into a glass jar, and add the vodka. Let it stand for 3 weeks. Yes, that’s right – patience, grasshopper!
On the Day, strain the lovely lemony yellow vodka into a large bowl. Make a simple syrup by heating together the water and sugar till they’re clear. Allow it to cool to the touch. Mix the syrup with the vodka. Put into wide-mouth containers of some type, and freeze.
You end up with sweet, slushy, refreshing, knock-you-off-your-feet goodness!
