- Wash and dry lemons well. Remove zest (yellow part only) with a paring knife and cut into very thin strips. Allow to soak in the alcohol for 24-48 hours.
- Bring water to a boil in a saucepan. Add sugar, stir to dissolve, then allow the syrup to cool.

- Pour the syrup into the bottles. Seal with new corks.
- Keep bottles in a dark, dry place.
- Wait at least two months before drinking.
Tips: Blend the sugar to a powder before using. Filter the flavoured alcohol several times for a clearer liqueur. If you want a clearer liqueur, filter it several times.
