A New Batch of Lime Liqueur

I had quite a few 'votes' for the Lime Liqueur at SlowBowl, so I decided I needed to get a new batch started.

Since it is beyond easy, I thought I'd post the one and only picture you you need to see in order to make your own.

Here it is.

This picture was take after only one day. See the difference in the color of the limes?

Scrub and dry 12 dark skinned limes.
Put 6 in a sealable jar.
Pour in one bottle Everclear.
Let sit for one week while Everclear sucks the color out of the limes.
Remove the bleached out limes and put the other 6 in the Everclear.
Let it suck the color out of those for about a week.
Make simple syrup in equal quantity to the Everclear (750 ml)
After the simple syrup cools pour it into the infusion.
Bottle and put in a cool dark place (the back of your freezer works great) until you can't resist any longer.
Best served icy cold in a frozen liqueur glass.
