I made this on Saturday and it was delicious. I've branched into homemade bread, juice and muesli, I suppose it was only natural that liqueur would follow suit!
Very easy to make - I do recommend it.
6 unwaxed lemons
150g caster sugar
Grate the zest from the lemons and juice them. Put in a bowl with the sugar and stir lightly to combine. Cover with clingfilm and leave to stand overnight. The sugar should be fully dissolved.
Strain the syrup through a fine sieve, or line a sieve with kitchen paper and strain through that, into a jug. Stir in the vodka.
Pour the liqueur into a clean bottle. Serve in small glasses, on the rocks, with Bach on the stereo, and Under the Tuscan Sun in hand. But candlelight and chess worked well too :)
I'm not sure how long it keeps, but I haven't got much left!
