Ingredients
  • 12 large, thick-skinned lemons or 8 Valencia oranges or 5 Ruby Red grapefruit, depending on which citrus type you want to use
  • 1 liter inexpensive vodka, such as Smirnoff or Tito's
  • 1 cup sugar
Directions
  • Remove the peels from the citrus carefully, making sure not to include any of the pith. Place the peels in a large container and add the vodka (reserve the vodka bottle for later). Infuse until the alcohol strips the oils and color out of the peels, 12 to 24 hours.

  • Meanwhile, make the simple syrup. Combine the sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook, stirring, until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.

  • Fill the vodka bottle with about 27 ounces of the infused vodka and 7 ounces of the simple syrup and place in the freezer. Serve ice cold in chilled small copita or shot glasses.
