  • peel from one large lemon or one medium orange


  • Using a vegetable peeler remove the rind from the lemon or orange and julienne the rind into thin strips.
  • Add the strips to a 1/2 pint jar and then add the vodka.
  • Clean the rim and add the lids and rings. Store the jars in a dark cool place and shake the jar once a day for a month. 
  • Before you use the extract make sure you shake the jar first but you should have a vibrant extract within six months. The extract will last indefinitely.
