– 3 cups vodka – 8 lemons – 3 cups water – 1 ½ cups sugar

Preheat water bath using immersion circulator to 135 degrees F.

Use a vegetable peeler to remove the rinds from the lemons, peeling off as little of the white rind as possible.

Add the vodka and lemon peels to a quart sized jar. Place in water bath and cook for 2 hours.

While the vodka mixture is cooking, make simple syrup by combining water and sugar in a saucepan over low heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool to room temperature.

When vodka mixture is done, strain mixture into a large bowl and discard lemon peels. Add simple syrup and whisk to combine.

Pour into airtight jars and refrigerate.
