1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (6 lemons)
6 tablespoons sugar syrup (see note)
¼ cup Italian Limoncello liqueur
1½ cups cold club soda, such as Pelligrino
Ice cubes
Sliced lemon, for serving

Combine the vodka, lemon juice, sugar syrup, and Limoncello in a large pitcher. Just before serving, pour in the club soda and stir. Fill highball glasses with ice and pour the mixture over the ice. Garnish each drink with a slice of lemon and serve cold.

Note: To make sugar syrup, combine 1 cup of sugar with ½ cup water in a small saucepan, bring to a boil until the sugar dissolves and cool.
