Elderberry liqueur--courtesy of Hunter Angler Gardener Cook!
This was very easy to make. I harvested elderberries at work last Friday and put this together over the weekend.
Just: wash berries, put in jars, add lemon peel (no white pith), fill jars with vodka. Let sit! For weeks! Then open jars, add sugar to taste (maybe about 1/3 cup for the whole batch according to the website above). Yes.
Now that I've done this, I'm considering doing other infused liquors. Citrus vodka when citrus is in its high season? Berry flavor? Peach? Hmmmm....
