Gin Infusion Recipe

After trialing several different infusions, this one was the winner by a mile by our gin enthusiast-relatives! 

Its the grapefruit that really gives it a lovely lift and vibrancy.

Create your own blend, use the recipe below or divide the litre of vodka into two or four and create a series of recipe variations using different citrus and varying ratios of herbs and spices.

 Ingredients

  • 1 litre vodka
  • 16g Juniper Berries
  • 4g Angelica Root
  • 4x Cardamom Pods
  • 12g Coriander Seeds (crush lightly)
  • 3.5g Liquorice Root
  • 2g Cinnamon (cassia) – either pieces or quills (not powder)
  • 1/6 teaspoon (yes, one sixth of a teaspoon or 1/2 gram) Orris Root Powder
  • 4 teaspoons fresh grapefruit peel

Method

  1. Decant the vodka into a large glass jar. 
  2. Mix all botanicals in with the vodka, stirring well. 
  3. Place the lid on allow to sit for 48 hours. 
  4. You can either give the jar a shake (if the lid seals properly) or give it a stir a couple of times during the 48 hours. 
  5. Strain and enjoy with your favourite tonic or mixer.

 

Try adding any of your favourite herbs or spices, either fresh or dried.  For colouring, add hibiscus flowers to create a crimson coloured infusion or butterfly pea flowers for a blue infusion.
