First how about knowing about lemon feature!
Vitamin C contained in lemon is outstanding in citrus fruits. Vitamin C prevents a cold and relieves stress. It is said that it also helps the operation of the liver, has detoxification, also effective for hangover.

Lemon is a fruit that is easy to get from, so please try by all means. There is no doubt that it will become fruit liquor of the house even at home.
When choosing a lemon, it is also good to choose the color and shape, as well as the thin skin and fine texture.
Ok you could understand about lemon so next see how to make this lemon-syu.
1 kg of lemon
100-200 g of rock sugar
35 degree shochu 1.8 liter
Actually when you choice shochu for lemon-syu you need to care what kind of shochu is good for making. We want to make lemon-syu , lemon is main feature shochu is Supporting.
So normally we choice Korui-shochu for making lemon-syu. Because Korui-shochu has no rich taste just we feel alcohol so korui-shochu can not beat lemon flavor.
But some of people like my mom choice barley shochu or rice shochu.
We definitely choice low-pressure distillation type of shochu. Normal-pressure distillation type of shochu is too strong taste for lemon-syu.
My mom loves to choice rice shochu 35 degree.
Ok how to make (recipe)
10% of the lemon uses the leather.
Rinse the lemon with a sewage and scrub the wax.
All other lemons are peeled. Especially pickle leather white cotton is carefully removed.
Cut the peeled pulp into two pieces.
Pour lemon flesh and ice sugar, lemon scents used for scenting into a sealed bottle and pour shochu.
A very light yellow liquor will be completed in about a month and a half.
※ If the amount of lemon peel is too much, please be careful because it will make you bitter.
After about one and half month later your lemon-syu is ready to drink.
