Yield: 1100 cc (1100 ml/1.1 lt./approx. 37 fl oz)
1 lt. (1000cc) dry white wine (good quality)
1 cup (200gr) sugar
Peel of 2 lemons (without the bitter white pith that's under the peel)
1 peeled and sliced lemon, just the pulp (without the bitter white pith that's under the peel)
3 tablespoons Vodka
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
In a glass jar with a twist-off lid, pour the wine, the lemon peel, the lemon slices, the vodka and the vanilla extract.
Carefully, close the jar and shake it a little bit.
Refrigerate for 24 hours.
The following day remove it from the refrigerator.
Strain the liqueur with a fine mesh strainer.
Filter it using a funnel lined up with a paper coffee filter or paper towels. Pour the liqueur into the lined up funnel a little at a time.
The filtration process is quite slow, so it can take a little while to finish.
Keep refrigerated and serve chilled.
