101 things to do with vodka

As a displacement activity for being really impatient to try the apple wine, I've been making some NotMead booze...

Barenjager Recipe
  • 6 cloves
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 700ml vodka
  • 300ml very nice heath honey
  • a container large enough to hold 1 liter
Making Barenjager liquor is a simple task, requiring mostly time before everyone can begin enjoying delicious homemade Barenjager drinks.
  1. First, rough chop the cloves and split the vanilla bean lengthwise before adding them to the container and filling it with the vodka.

  2. Let this mixture sit for at least 24 hours before straining the vanilla bean and the cloves from the vodka.

  3. Once the vodka is clear of any remaining pieces, stir vigorously, pouring the honey in a thin stream. Do not stop until the honey and the vodka are completely blended together. Store the finished Barenjager honey liqueur in a cool, dark area and enjoy.
It isn't quite finished yet as the last of the honey hasn't dissolved yet. Needs a few more days of regular shaking, and then I'll let it stand until it clears and syphon it off the layer of honey particles. The little I tasted was very nice though!
