Lemon Cardamom Cordial

Second one of the group.  More to come later.

Lemon Cardamom Cordial

6 cups brandy, 80 proof
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
5 cardamom pods, crushed
3 small cinnamon sticks, broken
8 whole allspice berries, crushed
5 whole juniper berries, crushed
sugar syrup (1 part white sugar + 1 part raw sugar + 1 part water, heated till dissolved)

Put brandy and lemon peel and spices into a large glass container and let sit for 24 hours.   Strain through a fine mesh coffee filter or cheesecloth, reserving liquid.  This resulted in 5-1/2 cups liquid, to which I added 2-1/2 cups sugar syrup.
