Homemade Lemon Vodka

I love a splash of citrus but don’t often like the artificial flavour that you can taste in a flavoured vodka.  This homemade lemon vodka is the perfect solution!

lemonvodkamainThis recipe comes from the December 2015 issue of Style at Home Magazine.

Ingredients:

  • 6 lemons
  • 750mL vodka

Directions:

  1. Wash the lemons with dish soap or fruit spray to thoroughly remove any residue (I like The Honest Company’s Fruit & Veggie Wash, $6.95).  Dry with a clean towel.
  2. Using a sharp knife or vegetable peeler, carefully remove the peel from the lemons, taking as little of the bitter white pith as possible.
  3. Reserve the fruit for another use.
  4. Place the peel in a clean lidded jar and pour the vodka over the zest to cover.
  5. Close the lid and leave in a cool, dark place for 30 days to infuse.

Hint: Replace the lemons with mandarin oranges to make Mandarin Vodka!
