How to make Krupnik (honey vodka)


½ vanilla pod
6 cloves
5 juniper berries
½ stick of cinnamon
5 allspice berries
½ nutmeg
1½ litres water
½ litre honey
½ litre pure spirit (95% ABV) vodka (available from Polish delicatessens)


Mix the spices and honey with the water, and bring to the boil. Allow to cool, then repeat the process (to allow the flavours to infuse).

When cold, strain the liquid, add the vodka, then bottle.

When sediment has formed after a few days, decant the liquid to remove the sediment, and rebottle.

Keep the mixture for as long as possible before drinking: a year is good, longer is better.
