Flavoured Vodka Part One

23 Oct
 

I’m planning a vodka tasting evening soon (it’ll be a blind tasting ) and though I’ve gathered a few different ones for us to try I thought it’d be good to make done of my own.

A lot of Googling has brought me a varied list I thought I’d attempt and today I began the process of making  them.

Today’s varieties are carrot, tomato and liquorice.

I’m just using 350 ml of vodka for each one as in total there will be at least 14 different ones and I doubt we’ll get through 750ml of each!

The basic recipes I’ve gone for are:

Carrot
1 1/2 large carrots peeled (this us optional) and then finely ribboned. This was placed in a large glass jar and 350ml of vodka poured over.

Tomato
1/2 pound of tomatoes each one cut into 8 pieces and placed in large glass jar. 350ml of vodka poured over.

Liquorice
I bought some delicious bars of liquorice and cut up 2 1/2 bars into z jar and poured 350 ml of vodka over.

I’m going test each over every day (shaking to mix) and see how the flavours develop. I’m expecting the carrot and tomato ones to be mixing for a week or so but the liquorice I may just leave for a day or do.

I’ll post back with the results as they develop.

Carrot and tomato are developing taste of their ingredients. Liquorice has full taste and colour so I’ve strained it through a coffee filter and bottled it to prevent the taste getting too overpowering if I left it any longer.
