Rind of 6 large lemons, lime, orange, or tangerines
1 cup vodka
Let's make it
Wash and dry fruit. Using a vegetable peeler, cut thin slivers of the yellow skin in long ribbons. Or if you have a zester, use that! Make sure not to peel off the bitter white pith. Place peels in a jar and cover with vodka. Shake well. Place in a cool dark place for 4-6 weeks. Shake every few days for the first week, then occasionally after that. The intensity will continue to increase with time. Strain peels and pour extract into a clean jar. Store in a dark place or the refrigerator.
