Scrub 4-5 lime fruits thoroughly to remove dirt or any chemical residue and wax. Dry them. Put the fruits - or the peels - in a clean glass jar with tight-fitting lid. Cover well with clear, unflavoured vodka - 40% alcohol content (80 proof). Let steep for 1 month or more - in a dark place at room temperature, 18-20°C (64-68°F). Shake lightly and taste it from time to time. Strain and filter your infusion into a clean glass bottle or jar with tight-fitting lid. Store (age) for at least 1 month in a dark place at room temperature before serving. Taste it from time to time.
