@brianherbert, i've heard that if you add the alcohol to the water first, then add the sugar (separating steps here w/ the simple syrup) it turns out cloudy/translucent, and if you add alcohol to simple syrup it comes out more clear. i did the alcohol-to-water, then sugar method when i made limoncello for holiday gifts this year and it turned out cloudy.
