I’m sipping on a glass of homemade Jamaican spiced vodka 42%ABV And very nice indeed.
the spices are hibiscus petals, cloves, star anise, fresh ginger, nutmeg & cinnamon and they were marinated in the vodka for a week to impart their flavours.
It’s a rip-off of a Jamaican spiced rum recipe - essentially a like for like copy but with hibiscus petals in place of sorrel (which is what Jamaican’s call hibiscus root), vodka not rum, as I live low-carb, and without any kind of sweetener included because I don’t like sweet stuff.
It’s far nicer than I imagined it would be, actually quite terrific.
My thanks go out to the good people of the Caribbean for helping to make my day a bit more special.
