A bottle of delicious flavoured spirit is always a welcome gift & this year I am making some Vanilla Honey Vodka
What is needed.....
A bottle of half decent Vodka...buy cheap, tastes cheap even with delicious flavourings
Good quality honey, from a local beekeeper if you can because then at least you know its not blended with some dubious imported sugar syrup from far off climes. I am using some of our own honey which has a lovely deep caramel taste.....
Vanilla pod, you can use 2 for an extra vanilla kick
A nice bottle....remember this is a gift so make it special
Pop the vanilla pod into the jar
Using a funnel add a good glug of honey ( a tbsp or 2) warm it a little first
Add Vodka, seal & give the jar a good shake
Set aside in a cool dark place.
Most infusions take from 7-10 days but it depends how strong you want the flavour.
The only way to know if the infusion is ready is to have a sip every now & again.
Add a fancy label & a lick of ribbon & there you have it a wonderful Homemade gift
