How to make a Polish Pepper Vodka?

5 Nov 2012 #1

I would like to make some of my own pepper vodka. Does anyone know the ideal amount of peppercorns to use per litre? I am assuming that black pepper is used.

to 1/4 liter of vodka add 5 beans of black pepper and leave for 7-8 days in a warm place.

it's good for your upset stomach! :)

For purely medicinal purposes this is a good recipe. But for drinking enjoyment, after straining away the peppercorns, you might add 1-2 teaspoons simple syrup. (1 teaspoon sugar dissolved in 2 teaspoons hot water). It will soften the harsh edge.

Thanks for that, the reason I asked is because I have been given 2 litres of Smirnoff red vodka (not the best i know:). I don't plan on drinking this vodka straight so I thought I would make some herb or spice vodka to make the taste more interesting.

I was planning on making 500ml of pepper vodka, 500ml with juniper, 500ml lemon balm and 500ml lemon verbena.

I was thinking of leaving the herbs/spice to steep in the vodka for a month and then filtering them out. I thought of adding sugar but I am not sure if it remains stable long term?

If anyone has done something similar and has any tips I would be grateful.

my niece's godfather is making St John’s wort tincture and taking it to Spitzbergen as antidepressant. He simply take herbal bags, douse it with vodka and left this for 3 weeks....
