krupnik (vanilla spice vodka)

September 8, 2012

krupnik sounds a lot like some other infused vodkas i’ve made… but i’ve never used vanilla extract before. what a fantastic idea! i think this will be a new favorite. wiki says its russian and polish cousins are called medovukha and miód pitny.

1 1/2 cups honey
2/3 cup water
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp nutmeg
8 cinnamon sticks
2 whole cloves
3 strips lemon peel (2 inch each)
1 bottle vodka (4/5 qt – 3 1/2 cups)

Combine honey with water, vanilla, spices and lemon peel in a large saucepan.
Bring to boiling.
Cover and simmer 5 mins.
Remove from heat.
Add vodka.
Serve hot or cooled.

  1. Allspice, mace & orange rind are also excellent in this. For a Ukrainian bend (pertsivka), try adding 2-3 (or 4,5,6!) hot chilies. Wonderful!
