Homemade Lemon Syrup

Add Sugar Rock To Infused Liquor

When you infuse vodka/ Shochu with lemons and Crystal White Sugar together, you can enjoy sweet bitter lemon sour.

We use white rock sugar to make homemade infused liquor.

If possible, it is recommended to use rock sugar.

Rock sugar gradually dissolves compared to ordinary white sugar, so alcohol infuses into the lemon first due to osmotic pressure.

The lemon extract slowly exudes bringing the infused liquor a rich mellow round taste.

How much do you need rock sugar each time?

As the guide, bring the ratio of 1 cup of liquor and 1 cup of lemon cuts to 1 cup of rock sugar. (1:1:1)

Or reduce half a cup of sugar and add lemon syrup when making a glass of lemon sour if needed.
