This recipe is easy and makes wonderful holiday gifts.
Wash lemons, and carefully peel in long strips. Scrape away any pith on the peels.
Place the peels in a glass jar or pitcher, cover with the alcohol and seal closed. (I used plastic wrap since no lid was available.) Let this steep for 45-50 days.
To make the simple syrup, bring the water to a boil in a large pan. Add the sugar, stirring until completely dissolved. This should take about 10 minutes. Cool completely.
Strain the alcohol mixture into a clean bowl or pitcher. A mesh strainer lined with a coffee filter will suffice.
Stir in simple syrup, and bottle for storage.
