home > recipes > beverages > lithuanian honey liqueur
from US Krupnikas 2 teaspoons caraway seed 10 whole cloves 10 whole allspice 4 sticks cinnamon 2 sticks vanilla 2 pieces yellow ginger 2 pieces white ginger 10 cardamom seeds 1/2 nutmeg 3 strips orange rind 3 strips lemon rind 1 pinch saffron 4 cups water 2 lbs honey 1 quart grain alcohol Crack cardamon seeds and nutmeg. Boil spices, rind and water in a covered pot until liquid is reduced to about 2 cups. Strain. In a pot large enough to hold the spiced liquid, alcohol and honey, bring honey to a boil. Skim off the foam. Pour spiced liquid into honey and stir. Remove from heat. Place far away from heat to prevent flare-up or expolsion of alcohol. Slowly, and very carefully, pour in alcohol. Replace pot on LOW heat. Heat, being careful not to simmer or boil, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool in the same covered pot overnight. Following day, pour into bottles and allow to settle (about 2 weeks). The longer it sits, the clearer it becomes and the better it tastes. Note: When I make this, I let it settle for a week. Pour off the clear liquid into a separate bottle, being careful not to disturb the sediment. Filter the sedimented portion (through a coffee filter) into a separate bottle. Do this several times over the next month. You will end up with a clear liqueur that is akin to the nectar of the gods. Good Luck and Enjoy!

2 pieces white ginger
10
cardamom seeds
1/2
nutmeg
3 strips
orange rind

4 cups water

Crack cardamon seeds and
nutmeg. Boil spices, rind and water in a covered
pot until liquid is reduced to about 2 cups. Strain.
In a
pot large enough to hold the spiced liquid, alcohol and honey, bring honey to a boil. Skim off the foam.

Pour spiced liquid into
honey and stir.

Remove from heat. Place far away from heat to prevent flare-up or expolsion of
alcohol. Slowly, and very carefully, pour in alcohol.

Replace
pot on LOW heat. Heat, being careful not to simmer or boil, for 15 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool in the same covered
pot overnight. Following day, pour into bottles and allow to settle (about 2 weeks). The longer it sits, the clearer it becomes and the better it tastes.

Note: When I make this, I let it settle for a week. Pour
off the clear liquid into a separate bottle, being careful not to disturb the
