This vodka is one of the most favorite vodkas among my friends. Mostly due to the fact that you don't taste alcohol at all...but believe me it is really strong...approx 70% and the best part is - no headaches and grumpy moods next day guaranteed :-) Also it really helps when you feel the flu is attacking you - have 1-2 shots and the virus will be gone.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10-15 minutes
- 1 l of fresh lemon juice - from approx. 1.5 kg of lemons
- 1 l of light honey - best is honey from lime tree - it must be light color, clear, with liquid consistency
- 1 l of 95% spirits (grain alcohol) - be aware that in some countries it is forbidden to sell such a strong alcohol, however in Poland you can get it quite easily
- you can also add a few tangerines
1. Mix alcohol with fresh lemon juice - together with the pulp but no seeds.
2. Cool it on low heat oven and stir well. Add slowly spoon by spoon the honey. Keep stiring all the time.
3. Make sure you will never get the mixture boiling otherwise your alcohol % will evaporate together with the steem.
4. after about 10-15 minutes when the mixture is well mixed and the honey fully melted, put it aside for a few minutes until it cools down a bit.
5. Pour the mixture into bottles and keep refrigerated for at least 2-4 weeks letting all the ingredients to mix well together.

When I was in Africa, very similar alcohol was called 'Medicine' as it was supposed to help you with the digestion of the crocodile carpaccio or ox tail gulash killing all the bacteria :)
