Spiced Vodka

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole vanilla pod (bean)
  • 500 ml (17 oz) good vodka
  • pinch of cardamom pods
  • 4-5 cloves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • palm-size piece of orange peel (100% pith free)
  • 1 liquorice root stick
  • thumb-sized piece of peeled ginger

Method:

Cut the vanilla pod lengthways before adding to the vodka and gently crush the cardamom pods – they’ll split open so the seeds can fall out. The cloves and cinnamon lend a warming, exotic note and the orange peel aroma is particularly uplifting (although use sparingly as its flavour is notoriously bitter. Make sure you’ve trimmed away all the white pith). The liquorice root should add a little sweetness, while the fresh ginger adds a fresh, verdant zing. Steep the ingredients in the vodka in a sterilised bottle (or use the vodka bottle itself, pouring out a little before infusing to make room for the ingredients). Leave in a dark, cool place for at least 2 days – or longer if you want a stronger taste. Strain the ingredients from the liquid and serve.
