When life hands you lemons, add vodka and make lemon extract!
Lemon extract is SUPER simple! All you need is a clean container, lemon zest, and vodka. For extraction, be sure to use at least 35%, or 70 proof alcohol. I usually go the the liquor store and buy the cheapest vodka.
Hubs was awesome and “volunteered” to zest the lemons for me. Lemon extract only calls for 2-3 lemons on zest per 1/2 cup of vodka. I added the zest to a mason jar, and poured in my vodka. My little mason jar is holding 1 cup of vodka, and zest from 5 lemons.
Lemon extract takes about 4-8 weeks, be sure to store in a dark place, and shake daily!
