Rosemary and mint flavor this interesting, slightly sweet liqueur
with a vodka base. Plan ahead. It takes a minimum of 3-1/2 weeks to steep.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
- 1-1/2 teaspoons rosemary leaves OR 1 teaspoon ground rosemary
- 1 mint leaf
- Sliced and scraped peel of 1/2 lemon
- 1/4 teaspoon coriander
- 1-1/2 cups vodka
- 1/2 cup sugar syrup
Gently crush the rosemary
leaves and mint with the back of a spoon on a breadboard so the aroma and oils are released. Add the lemon and herbs to the vodka
and steep for 10 days. Strain and filter. Add the sugar syrup. Mature for 2 to 4 weeks.
