Cornel is sour, but tasty and healthy berry. People make different cornel jams and compotes, but we will tell how to make cornel vodka!
We fill these 3-liter-jars with berries, like this.
Then we take vodka, or half-and-half alcohol with water…
And pour the jars.
Then the jars are put to the basement for 2-3 weeks. This is how the stuff looks after 10 days…
and after almost 3 weeks.
We decant the primary liqueur.
The liqueur is strong but too sour yet.
So we add about 500 grams of sugar into each jar, mix the stuff carefully, and put the jars again to basement – for another 2-3 weeks.
After almost a month we get such syrup.
We pour the primary liqueur into a pan and add the syrup there.
We also mix the berries with water and put to basement again – to make light liqueur.
