Fruit flavour vodka recipe

As promised, though it’s a little late, here’s the recipe for making fruit flavoured vodkas.

You will use pre made vodka for this recipe.

This is a long process, so don’t be expecting to drink this next week!

This is what you’ll need:

  • 680g of your chosen fruit
  • 1 litre of vodka (I usually use the Tesco’s basic or similar as you don’t need expensive stuff)
  • 525g of sugar (use caster sugar as it’s finer)

Here’s what you do:

  1. Rinse and check the fruit, then place it in a jar big enough to hold the entire mixture.
  2. Add the vodka and mix.
  3. Stir the mixture daily for the first 2 weeks.
  4. Stir weekly for the second 2 weeks.
  5. After the first 4 weeks, pass the mixture through a sieve, pressing all the liquid out with a spoon, discarding the fruit pieces. (There may still be fruit pieces in the liquid, these will be removed later)
  6. Add the liquid to a bottle.
  7. Add the sugar.
  8. Shake the bottle until the sugar has been dissolved.
  9. After 3 months strain the liquid through a cloth.
  10. Add more sugar if you feel necessary.
  11. Now leave it for at least 6 months! Preferably 12 months in total from start to finish to get the best possible taste!

And there you have it, a nicely coloured and deliciously flavoured fruit vodka.

Just please remember to enjoy this drink responsibly! 😉
