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