Here is a recipe for toothsome* yuletide tipple which if you start now will be ready to sip on 28th December. Technically still Christmas.
WARNING: This posting has not been edited by my educated co-blogger and so may contain all sorts of grammaticle erors.
Preparation time: 10 minutes plus at least 2 months waiting time
Cooking time: none
Skill level: easy
- Hawthorn berries – 500g
- sugar – 250g
- a cheep bottle of vodka with an implausible Russian name such as Vladivos – 750ml
First pick your Hawthorn berries.
As with the sloe gin, wash, freeze and defrost your berries.
Place in a suitably sized and sterilized Kilner jar.
Pour over the sugar and Vladivos.
Seal and shake.
Store in a cool dry place for 2 months – shake from time to time.
Strain through muslin and store in a sterilized bottle.
Serve either straight or mixed with soda water.
Verdict: Never had this before so we’ll tell you in two months time.
Drink: Again, we’ll have to wait a while before we know whether this is drinkable or tastes like Hai Karate.
Entertainment: Endless fun with Stickle Bricks
