The Rowanberry vodka.
The following recipe is one of my favorites, and this is a fascinating alcoholic drink that would not be available in any liquor store.
The recipe is based on wild berries and, in particular, on the rowanberries. The rowan berry is a rich vitamin C source and flavor for bitterly sweet vodka.
For this recipe, you will need around 3L of odorless rectified alcohol at 40% alc/vol made with the help of a fractional distiller (not a pot still - too harsh) and 300g of Rowan berries.
First of all, you have to find the tree with berries, and please note that berries are good for picking from the middle of Autumn. Locate the tree that far from traffic and industrial places.
Just pick up some berries and make sure that there left enough for birds.
Then bring your berries home and separate all the leafs and branches from berries. Measure approximately 300g of berries wash in freshwater.
Collect all berries to a plastic back, put them in the freezer, and leave them overnight. This procedure will make the berries skin soft and cracked to accelerate the soaking process.
Now take a 3L glass jar and put berries in it.
The next and most crucial step is to fill the rest of the jar's space with a high quality fractioned 40% alcohol.
When the jar is filling with alcohol - apply the lid and leave the drink at
room temperature for at least three weeks.
