i do it mostly by eye. i start with 1 bottle of vodka (or alcohol of your choice), then add my flavoring. i've done lemon, orange, grapefruit, and even cocoa nibs (for a chocolate liquor). i add about 15 lemons to 1 bottle of vodka. zest it into the vodka. let it sit for a week, then add some simple syrup. i add more than i think it needs, because you'll add another bottle of vodka before the whole process is over. after you adjust the flavor, let it rest another week. add another bottle of vodka and let rest one more week. do a final taste test and see if it needs more sugar. then just strain it and bottle it back up.

i've also done this the "quick" way. use 2 bottles of flavored vodka, add some citrus zest, simple syrup, and let it rest for 4 days. strain and adjust the sweetness. then just bottle it up.
