DIRECTIONS

  • Wash lemons and lime under ho water.
  • Thinly peel them, avoiding the white part of the peel because it would make the liquor bitter.
  • Place the peel in a glass bottle or jar, fill in the Ouzo, seal the bottle and let stand in a cool lace for 12 days, shaking the bottle every now and then.
  • On day 13, heat water and sugar, bring to a rolling boil and boil for 3 minutes, then let cool completely.
  • Slowly pour ouzo from the bottle through a sieve lined with cheese cloth into a clean jar, then mix with sugar syrup and fill into a clean bottle.
  • The liquor will keep forever in the unlikely case that you don't drink it -- .
