Marmalade Vodka

    Impatient lot aren't you?

    For those desirous of instant gratification I recommend honey vodka. Simply add a decent amount of honey, maybe a 5th or 6th part of whatever container you're using. Top up with vodka and then shake until the honey is dissolved. Then drink. Smooth, warm and sweet .

    That is much nicer if you use whisky as the spirit!:yes:

    I have just added a jar of Aldi Marmalade to 3/4 of a litre of old vodka, now the wait begins.:yes:

    Planning on doing a bottle of bourbon with honey. :good:

    Yes Bourbon would work, if I can stop people drinking it before I can add the honey!:rolleyes:

    The vodka in our house apparently evaporates through a tightened lid.:hmm:Hence the vodka and gin is in the Gunroom.

    My Grandmother used to make really nice rhubarb & ginger jam, I took the hint & have some Rhubarb & ginger Vodka on the go, might add some Marmalade to one batch & try it

    St Dalfour do a very nice orange and ginger marmalade - I wonder if that would work

    No, like marmalade:yes:

    Difficult to pin it down but certainly with this marmalade, you could taste the oranges.  Not as nice a drink on it's own, like sloe gin or fig vodka but with a dash of prosecco or tonic water it was a very nice drink.

    Does this marmalade vodka taste like Cointreau?

    Ok, so yesterday I experimented with a large measure of vodka and a teaspoon of the St Dalfour orange and ginger marmalade.

    Stirred it well and left it to stand for a few hours.

    I drank the tincture last night.

    A good hit of orange, the ginger came through too, but rather sweet for me, very like Cointreau

    Just been to shake the bottle and wonder if there is a finite amount of marmalade that a given measure of vodka can support?

    May have to decant and refresh with new vodka!

    Probably. My original batch still had undissolved marmalade even after several months and a lot of shaking.

    Give it a whirl lads, I don't think you'll be disappointed (as long as you like marmalade).

    I used Lidl thick cut marmalade. Some heavy shaking for the first week or two, the marmalade doesn't completely break down, at least not in the quantity I used. No extra sugar needed imho. Then just leave for a while.

    Might have to give the marmalade gin a try next. Let me know how yours comes out hambone.

    Just had another go at it and have to say the extra week has made a big difference, orange is coming through over the tonic. Very nice :good:

    I strained (more like wrung) the undissolved marmalade and bay leaves in a 'Leo pea' bag over a funnel into the bottle

    I see, well we may have to conduct further trials then!

    Still haven't sorted mine...the undissolved bit has me thinking,

    I think I'll put the lot through a blender first see if it makes a difference.

    Now who's for Marmite Vodka? I reckon it would go well with the salted liquorish mentioned on here last year.

    Or it could be a great way to stop others drinking the vodka!:good:

    Won't that make the bourbons go soggy?

    Just got in from a long day out in Sussex. Eaten a roast dinner turned the computer on and have to say, I have not tried it yet!

     

    Just tried it and it is wonderful, what a great way to make cheap vodka very drinkable.:yes:

    Seems just a complicated way of making cheep Vodka palatable.

    l’ll just stick with the Torres 10 Brandy from Waitrose. Just as it is!!
