Step #3 - Put 4 cups of ever clear in with the rinds of the lemons - which should be in the iced tea jug. Tighten lid and swoosh around to make sure the rinds are mostly submerged in the alcohol. Store the jug in cool (room temp), dry, and dark place for 2 weeks. Every 2-3 days swoosh the liquid around to make sure all the rinds are getting their fair share of drowning in the alcohol.
After you let the rinds and the ever clear sit in your iced tea jug, and has been in the dark, is dry, and has been at room temp for 2 weeks and shook up every couple of days. Then go to step #4
Step #4 - Bring 5 cups of cold water to a boil! Add 4 cups of sugar to the boiling water and turn off the stove off! Stir the sugar for a couple minutes until you know it has disolved. Let sit until it becomes luke warm or cooler. While the sugar water is cooling - you can get a strainer out and strainer your lemon rinds. IMPORTANT - discard the lemon rinds and keep the liquid. Transfer the liquid (ever clear) back into the large icead tea jug.
Step #5 - Once your sugar water is cooled add it to the ever clear liquid. Swoosh it around really well for a couple of minutes to make sure it mixes up nice. Then put it back in a cool (room temp), dry, dark place for another 2 weeks. Again, every 2-3 days mix it up a little bit.
Step #6 - After the 2 weeks is up - Re-bottle it in to little cool bottles that will fit in your freezer! Don't forget to share with the neighbors, your friends, and family! It is best right out of the freezer! Some people enjoy a little splash of Lemincello in their chardonay or champagne.
