  1. Using a vegetable peeler, you peel the lemons. Keep only the yellow zest, carefully cutting away any white, bitter pith.
  2. Place the lemon zest along with the alcohol in a glass jar.
  3. Then you wait. For 3 weeks. Shake once in a while.
  4. When the infusion is ready, strain out the lemon peel.
  5. Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a large pan over high heat.  When the mixture boils, remove from heat, and let cool to room temperature.
  6. Carefully mix the syrup together with the lemon-infused alcohol and store in bottles in the fridge or freezer.

Cheers!
