I'd like to add my bit to the flavored vodka topic. Here's a simple
recipe I got from an old German-Russian cousin of mine in North
Dakota many years ago.
In his basement, he had an assortment of different flavored vodkas
that was a taster's delight. I think we tasted them all! He called
it "vodka wine." But, whatever you want to call it, - it is delicious.
Simply slice some fruit in a wide-mouth glass jar, add sugar to
suit your taste, (or no sugar at all), and add enough vodka to cover
Cap the jar, and set it in a cool place for a couple months or
longer. Experiment with different kinds of fruit. It is a wonderful
drink on a cold winter evening, - or over the rocks on a hot summer
Some of our thirsty friends like to sample it when they come over
to our house to play whist.
