Maybe I could sell it to a bar as pre-made lemondrops?

Help! My limoncello is too sweet!

Two years ago I started a batch with meyer lemon and 100 proof vodka then forgot it and left it in my liquor cabinet. I finally got around to cutting it tonight and I got the proportions all wrong. I had about 1 1/4 cup of alcohol, so I used 2 cups simple syrup (2 cups water, 2 cups sugar) to bring it to around 33% abv. It's way too sweet. I'm afraid just adding more alcohol will dilute the subtle meyer lemon flavor. Is there any solution besides starting another batch of infused alcohol and adding it to the current mix? I was hoping to use this batch for summer.
