Lemon Shrub

Author/Submitted by: Edible Gifts by Claire Clifton and Martina Nicolls, Tiffany Hall-Graham
Servings: 1
Categories: Alcoholic Beverages / Brandy / Wine

1  bottle  Spanish brandy
    Peel of 1 lemon
    Juice of 2 lemons
1/2  bottle  Dry white wine
2  ounces  Sugar

Put the brandy, peel and lemon juice in a large glass jar. Cover and let it stand for 3 days, then add the wine and sugar. Cap again, tightly. Leave for a day or two in a warm place to dissolve the sugar, then strain through double muslin into clean bottles and seal.

The authors note that Lemon Shrub tastes a little like dry vermouth and can be drunk with ice and lemon peel or mixed as Pimms with lemonade or sparkling water.
