The basic concept is that you put a lot of aromatic things in a container along with the vodka, let them infuse for a couple of weeks, discard the solids, strain off the liquid and consume it -- Simples!
|One bottle of vodka, lots of spices, aromatics, sugar etc|
|Put the whole lot in a plastic container|
|Swoosh it about a bit - you then have a rather unappetising-looking brown liquid|
|Seal the container and put it in your fridge for a couple of weeks|
It doesn't look particularly nice at this stage, but believe you me, the taste of the finished thing will redeem it. We enjoyed last year's one as a "digestif" at the end of our Christmas meal, and it was very popular!
