DIRECTIONS

  • Remove the zest from the lemons with a vegetable peeler (about 5 strips per lemon). The fruit can be put aside for another use. Make sure to scrape off any white pith from the zest.
  • Soak zest in vodka for 4 days (room temperature).
  • Strain vodka through a fine-meshed sieve, discarding the zest. Transfer vodka to a glass bottle (preferably 2 quart).
  • Simmer milk and sugar over medium low heat, uncovered, until reduced to about 4 cups. Should be about 25-30 minutes.
  • Skim off any foam.
  • Cool sweetened milk completely and then add to vodka.
  • Chill at least 2 hours.
  • Shake well before serving.
