- 1 bottle Rain 80 Proof Vodka
- 3 Buddha's Hand Citron
- 2 liter glass jar with resealable lid
- 4 cups simple syrup
- SIMPLE SYRUP:
- 4 cups sugar
- 4 cups water
Remove and thinly slice “fingers” from citron, then use a vegetable peeler to remove additional zest from the body of the fruit. Place zest and chopped fruit into a jar and completely cover with vodka, then shake to combine. Store container in dark, cool area and shake once daily; allow at least 6 weeks to infuse. When fully infused, remove zest and place liquid back in jar.
To make the syrup, combine sugar and water in saucepan on medium heat, and stir until sugar is dissolved. When cool, add syrup to buddhacello and shake to combine; serve well-chilled.
