REMEMBERING HOW

PLEASANT THIS ITALIAN

APERITIF WAS

…shared with friends…

I diverge from the recipe above:

Peel the zest of  9 lemons with a potato peeler, avoid the white part which makes bitter, put vodka and zest in a mason jar or tight cap bottle and shake well, place in a cool place for 5 days, shake twice daily to produce lemony flavor.

After the 5th day, strain and discard the vodka lemon zest, add the sugar syrup to the lemony vodka.  Keep in the refrigerator and serve cold and voila!

…outstanding taste if you like lemons!
