What You’ll Need:
1 bottle vodka (750ml.)
2 lemons, rinsed (ideally organic, Meyer lemons)
Cheesecloth
Twine

To Finish:
1 cups simple syrup (I used the juice from the two lemons as part of the fluid for the simple syrup to add to the flavor (50/50 water and sugar by weight)
Zest of two lemons (new, fresh Meyers)

Directions:
Pour vodka into a clean glass jar.
Wrap lemons in cheesecloth and suspend over vodka (using the twine to secure them).
Seal tightly, and let sit undisturbed (in a cool, dark place) for one month.
After one month, discard lemons, then add syrup and the fresh zest of two new lemons.
Let sit for 15 minutes, and strain through a fine mesh sieve (or more cheesecloth).
Chill and then drink up.
