This one is for my friend, whose name rhymes with “who” or “clue,” and kind of sounds like “booze.” Hmmmm. Coincidink? 🙂
I made this the other weekend, just because, but ended up taking it to a Memorial Day celebration. It is delicious and fizzy and refreshing and may or may not (we can’t really say for sure) have pushed said friend, right off the Pretty Buzzed Cliff and straight into the Drunk Ocean. She may or may not disagree…
So, this is apparently a faux limoncello because the lemons/lemon peels are not steeped in vodka. In this recipe, the juice is added to a simple syrup. This version is quick, delicious and potent. Here’s to cliff-diving! 🙂
Also, a mantra to live by:
Yield: about 4 cups
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice (about 10 -12 lemons)
1 1/2 cup vodka
1. In a small saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil and stir until sugar dissolves and thickens slightly into a simple syrup.
2. Let cool, then pour into a pitcher or serving carafe.
3. Stir in lemon juice and vodka.
4. Serve over ice and top with club soda.
