Happy Hour at Our House

A month has been and gone and after some very patient waiting our homemade, flavoured vodka is ready! Looking at cherry and lemon spirits though they still had sediment left in them, especially the lemon vodka. So I searched out some muslin, and went about straining each vodka through a double layer suspended in a sieve, not really expecting much. When we made them, we did try and strain them through coffee filters, but I think they filter much too finely. The vodka could barely pass through them and simply welled up instead, so on I went with my muslin experiment and wow! What a result. They came out crystal clear. Especially the lemon vodka. It came out looking identical to our inspiration; Lemon vodka from Demijohn, in Edinburgh. Awesome.

So I broke out my reclaimed drinks tray and got the party started. If you’re looking for a tip, the lemon is lovely straight as an after dinner cleanser and the cherry is delicious diluted with chilled, bitter lemon. Yum. Happy Summer!
