Here's Uni's instructions from "what are you cooking today" Kathryn. I've now put a copy in Non TMX recipes.

Can you get your hands of pure alcohol? Or you can use vodka
300mls of alcohol
Zest of 3 large lemons (unsprayed)
400mls of boiling water
200 mls of sugar
Soak zest in alcohol for 7 days (i do 5 days only)
Mix water and sugar let cool
Strain lemon zest and add alcohol to the cooled water and sugar mixture
I will only use lemons that have not been sprayed with any chemicals (backyard one are the best) i have tried shop bought organic lemons was not happy with the taste of the end product.


For sambuca just add bottle of queens aniseed essence or sambuca essence from an Italian deli, to the alcohol

Has anyone got any more recipes for using up watermelon? I'm going to cut into chunks and freeze and then should be ready to add to some drinks - please let me know of anything that springs to mind

The peaches from my parents tree are dropping in the warm weather.  In the interests of not wasting fruit, I have been cutting off the bad squishy bits and composting them. This has left me with chunks of perfectly good peach flesh which I have turned into delicious daiquiri's. Waste not, want not! Hic.
Last night I substituted 1/3 of the peaches with frozen raspberries. They were divine. I love summer holidays.....
