Directions:
Peel the lemons. You want to use only the rinds, do not use any of the white of the skin. Place the lemon rinds into a large, glass container (able to hold at least 2 gallons). The containers must be glass and must be able to close, for example, a large pickle jar. Add the grain alcohol to the lemon rinds. Close container and allow to sit for at least six weeks. After the 6 weeks, boil the distilled water. Let the water almost cool and then add the sugar. Stir to dissolve. Strain the lemon rind and alcohol mixture. Into a second bottle, pour in the strained alcohol and the sugar water mixture. Place in freezer or refrigerator until ready to use.
