I'm from New Orleans so it's easy to find most kinds of alcohol here.  We have drive thru daiquiri shops after all.  I forget other places are different.  

I got mine from my local grocery store but you could definitely substitute with 180 proof.  Try brands like everclear or diesel, or you can just use vodka and let it cure a little longer.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / getting started on: November 19, 2003 10:30:37 PM
I'm trying to learn how to crochet but I'm having some trouble.  My vision is impaired and I have trouble seeing the stitches. What is the easiest kind of yarn to learn with.  I think I might need something larger so I can  see what I'm doing better.  

I'm starting to get discouraged.  Any ideas?

Thanks for the "Serving Suggestions" idea.

Here's the recipe I have:

8 organic lemons (untreated)
1 liter Diesel Grain Neutral Spirits 190 proof
2 1\2 cups sugar
1 quart plus 1\2 cup bottled still water

peel lemons leaving a little white attached to peel.  Place lemon peels in a large glass or ceramic container with the alcohol; close container well.  Leave in a cool place for at least a week, gently shaking a couple times a day.  
After at least a week, prepare a syrup by heating together the sugar and water, making sure the syrup never quite boils, let simmer 5 minutes, stirring until sugar dissolves.  Let syrup cool.
Strain the lemon alcohol with gauze and mix alcohol into syrup.  Shake well before pouring into bottles.  Let it sit for at least 3 days before serving cold.  It will last indefinitely in the refrigerator.

I want to make Lemon Liqueur for my friends  and put it in pretty bottles for xmas.  I got a recipe but I'm kind of nervous about trying it.  I'm worried it won't be tasty and it takes a couple weeks to age so I feel like there's no room for error.

Has any one tried this before?

Does it sound like a good idea for a gift?
