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.
Serve hot or cooled.
incredible. one of my favorites. do this immediately.
