1) 1 gallon of the very best plain vodka you can afford.
2) Zest of 8 lemons. Use a vegetable peeler.

Add the zest to the vodka and let it rest in a dark place for 4 weeks, after 4 weeks shake well and let rest for 4 more weeks.
3) Make simple syrup by mixing 3 cups sugar with 3 cups of water. Dissolve the sugar in the water and bring to boil for 1-minute stir constantly to keep from burning.
4) Let the simple syrup cool.
5) Remove the lemon zest from the vodka and discard.
6) Add the simple syrup to the lemon flavoured vodka and let rest for ten more days.
7) Chill in the freezer before serving.
