Love this on a warm afternoon, beware you don’t taste the alcohol! I find Skyy Vodka citrus has the best lemon taste. I use 1-1/4 cups sugar with the water, it was too sweet in my first attempt. Great for small gathering of company.
I make this all the time! Our favorite is Grey Goose citron or Belvedere citron for the vodka, but beware that you won’t taste it if made correctly! Enjoy on a warm summer day or evening. Recipe can be multiplied to make a larger batch with the same taste! (I make a gallon for the 4th of July!)
