This infusion is another keeper!
CRE8ion by Jess Morton
Although I named this infusion, ‘Aquavit-Inspired,’ the final product reminded me of an absinthe. With the dilution process the essential oils from the spices created a louche effect that reminded me of absinthe, especially with the colour. The one thing I would change is double the portions of the spices in the recipe. The flavour was good, but could have been more intense. Recipe below is the adjusted version, and be sure to start with whole spices!
- 2 teaspoon of Caraway seed
- 1 teaspoon of Coriander Seed
- 2 Whole Star Anise
- 1 teaspoon of Dill Seed
- Zest of half of 1 lemon (2-3 large strips)
Throw all ingredients in a glass mason jar, seal, and let sit in a cool and dark place.
Infusion time: 24 hours.
Strain out all ingredients, and funnel back into the CRE8 Vodka bottle.
Fill with purified water to the 40% ABV mark on the bottle. Shake well and enjoy.
Infusion Rating (out of 5): 4.5/5
