Infused Vodka

We have Meyer Lemon, Tangerine, and Kumquat trees and have been enjoying them for several months. A friend shares Oranges and Grapefruit from their trees. I’ve been juicing them at breakfast.

Then zested some to make Citrus Infused Vodka!

Its best to avoid the white part- it will add a bitter flavor to the drink.
I also feel better about using the zest from trees that I know have not had any pesticides sprayed on them.

Fill a Mason Jar with the zest and poured enough vodka to cover.


We did this with Meyer Lemon, Oranges and Grapefruit. Let it soak for at least a week before sampling.
Similar to Lemoncello but not the exact recipe. Lemoncello uses grain alchahol and calls for sugar.

The color and flavor is amazing and It makes a great Vodka Tonic ;-)

Here is recipe from a friend for a Lemoncello Cream
