I have been threatening to get this little job done for a while now, its the kind of job that i get around to on a day that I don't need to leave 'the ranch'. The perfect rainy dull day presented itself, last week and along with a batch of blueberry jam (which didn't set very well) and a birthday cake for Little Bee, I made just three bottles of blackcurrant vodka.
The process is quite simple, sterilize bottles in the oven and leave to cool.
Put blackcurrants in bottle.
Sprinkle liberally with sugar.
Top up with in vodka.
Shake gently to dissolve sugar.
Stash in cool dark place.
Will be ready by Halloween, but try to keep some until Christmas.
I normally make this with raspberries, but i'm loosing all faith in any Autumn raspberry harvest this year.
From what i read though the blackcurrant version is supposed to be excellent.
This is what it looks like this morning nearly a week later.
No, I haven't had a nip out of bottle no. 3 . I just ran out of vodka ;)
Linking up to Ta-dah Tuesday
