After the successful making of Sloe Gin for the last few years, I wanted to try more. Here is the recent concoction, which also seems to be a success. We gave it to friend of ours as a present, she liked it and requested the recipe. So, Dina, here is the improved recipe for you 🙂
This is one of those recipes that requires a little time and a lot of patience, rather than skill, and the results are well worth it.
We opened my infusion at around 10 days and liked the flavour. However, the flavour will vary and will deepen with time. I suggest tasting it periodically until the depth of flavour is to your liking.
SPICED PEAR AND GINGER INFUSED VODKA
2 pears, ripe, firm, cored and sliced
1 cinnamon stick
2-3 cm sliced ginger
7 whole cloves
4 cups vodka
1/3 cup sugar
glass jar with lid
Add all ingredients to the jar, seal, store in a dark, cool location. Taste at 5-7 days. If flavour is desireable, strain vodka into a clean jar and seal until using.
If deeper flavour is desired, continue to infuse until flavour is prefered then strain and seal in a clean jar.
