Print Friendly Recipe
- 3 cups (700 ml) to 4 cups (950 ml) fruit
- 1 lemon or lime, peel only
- 1-3/4 liters inexpensize vodka
- All you do is take 3 to 4 cups (950 ml) of fruit, the peel of a lemon or lime (I use a stripper and get nice long curls of it) which helps draw the flavors out of the fruit.
- Put them in a gallon sized jar (I use a nice glass one so I can watch the progress) and cover with about 1.75 liters of fairly inexpensive vodka.
- Place the lid on and let them sit, turning the jar every day when you pass by, for about 3 to 4 weeks.
- Then strain out the berries with cheesecloth and bottle the vodka.
- It can be stored at room temperature, or in the freezer.
- It's great for making Raspberry Lime Rickies (vodka, club soda, ice and a lime wedge) in the summer!
- I have been making flavored vodka with raspberries and blackberries.
You can use any kind of fruit, but this is what I have tried so
I think I am going to keep making these all through the fall with
other kinds of fruits. Meyer lemons would be great if I could find
some. Well, I hope others might try this! I used to hate drinking
vodka, but now it's pretty neat!
For something really interesting, try the berries after you've
strained them out, they pack QUITE a wallop! (I was doing this at
10 in the am so I had to watch it!!)
I found these on a recipe archive web site a while back (http://recipes.alastra.com/default.html. the lemon works really well, but haven't tried any berries yet. Good luck!
