Ingredients

6 unwaxed lemons

500g caster sugar

1 litre Asda Vodka

Method

1
Carefully remove the peel from the lemons with a vegetable peeler, taking care not to include any of the white pith. Squeeze out the juice from the lemons and set aside.
2
Put the caster sugar in a pan with 200ml water, then stir over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Add the lemon peel to the pan, bring to the boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
3
Add the juice, bring back to the boil and simmer for another 5 minutes. Leave to cool for 15 minutes.
4
Put in a large jar and add the vodka. Cover tightly and leave for two weeks, shaking the jar very gently every two days.
5
Strain the liqueur and pour into bottles. Add a strip of zest to each. Serve chilled as an after-dinner treat.
