Can I use lemon syrup for Limoncello?

I started making a Limoncello by putting lemon peel in a jar with 95% alcohol. It was a pity to throw the leftover lemons, so I also juiced them, added sugar and made a syrup. Now the Limoncello recipe tells me to mix the lemon infused alcohol with a simple syrup. I was thinking, can I use the lemon syrup itself for this purpose? It sounds very logical step to do but no recipe I found suggest to do this, so what am I missing here? submitted by /u/need_a_medic [link] [comments]
