Having a crack at pretty much home grown Ginger Beer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmX5yBrOXr8&feature=youtu.be
I guess the title says it all. Inspired by my ginger beer success, I'm having a go at alcoholic lemonade (from Kumquats)
Wow - it worked! https://youtu.be/WDS5a-lgQW0
Here is a new one: Honey Liquor
2/3 cup honey
1/2 cup water
1-inch piece of orange zest, pith removed (optional)
1 stick cinnamon (optional)
1 1/2 cups vodka
Cook the honey, water, orange zest, and cinnamon over medium heat stirring frequently, until it is integrated into a syrup, about 5 minutes. Let cool, with the orange zest and cinnamon still in the pot. Scrape off any white foam.
Once the syrup has cooled, remove the zest and cinnamon. Then combine the honey syrup and vodka in a sealable glass jar, seal, and shake. Serve immediately, or for better flavor, allow to rest for a minimum of 12 hours. Store at room temperature or in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
