I started this infusion two and a half months ago. I was supposed to bottle it two weeks ago but was not able to locate it due to the move. I found it today, filtered and bottled it just in time for the holiday baking. I used Meyer lemon for this but you can use whatever lemon you have available.
This is my first homemade fruit liqueur and it took two and a half months in the making. I finally bottled it over the weekend. Chris and I toasted to buying our first home. Looking forward to making more liqueurs in the new place. Salud!
About a month ago, I made my own vanilla extract using different spirit variations. I wanted to see how each vanilla extract would render. Since there weren’t any well spirits in my house, I decided to use the stuff I had on hand. Here’s what I had: Grey Goose Vodka, Bacardi Rum, Captain Morgan Spiced Rum, and Don Julio Blanco Tequila. The photo above is at 33 days of aging. 1 more month to go!
