How to make it

  • in a clean unchipped enamel or stainless steel pot combine the 1 1/2 cups water, spices, and peels and bring to a boil.
  • remove from heat, allow to cool, cover and set aside in cool place to steep for 7 days.
  • strain mixture carefully through coffee filters several times until clear. discard spices.
  • boil honey with the one cup of water. remove any material that may rise to the surface with a slotted spoon. this makes for a clearer brew. cool.
  • in a large, clean 1.75-liter bottle, combine the spice liquid with the honey liquid. mix together. fill the rest of the bottle with 100 proof vodka or substitute a lower proof vodka to make a less potent cordial. wait one month before serving for flavors to pull together.
  • makes approximately 1.75 liter bottle

    If you like or want to try Krupnik but don't have the spices, you can visit KrupnikCo. They sell Krupnik spice packs for making different kinds of Krupniks at home.

    I've tried several flavors and they are fantastic. Very Highly Recommended!!

    Sounds very warming. What do are the medicinal uses are they listed? Juniper berries are easy for me. I just have to walk out in my yard a few feet. I have bunches of juniper trees all around me. Have been wanting to collecti pine nuts too but haven't had time yet. Thanks for an interesting recipe, am book marking it
