Dandelion Liquor

Thick liquor from summer dandelions is an unforgettable digestif, which can surprise guests by putting a bottle with a bright drink on the table. The "flower" of taste is palpable: the colder the liquor, the richer the dandelion note. This wonderful alcoholic drink needs only two days of infusion. This is his “competitive advantage” over other liqueurs, which are forced to languish for weeks in dark cool rooms. You can serve dandelion liqueur with ice cream.

Flowers collected on a wet and overcast day seem “grassy”,the floral scent that is unique to them does not fully manifest itself. 2. Dandelions should be enough to fill the flower heads completely liter jar. Having measured the required number of colors, proceed to the "separation" of the buds. The green bases of the buds are quickly cut off with scissors, the yellow petals are folded into a bowl.

9. If there is a hot weather, all the sugar dissolves in the juice of dandelions. The liquid is filtered, the petals are thrown away. This dandelion syrup is mixed with vodka. If the weather was cool, all the sugar does not dissolve in 2 days, and it is not advisable to push the petals longer. In this case, the entire contents of the jar is transferred to the pan, heated over low heat for 4-5 minutes until the sugar completely dissolves.
