Liqueur de Farigoule
This liqueur is great as an aperitif over ice or as an after dinner digestif.
Ingredients3 oz fresh thyme
1 strip dried orange peel
2 allspice berries
1 pinch anise seed
1 strip lemon peel
.75 liters vodka (I like Ketel One)
.25 liters water
100 grams sugar
- Wash and pat dry the thyme. Put all the ingredients except the vodka, water and sugar in a 1 liter container. Add the vodka. Weight the thyme so that it is completely submerged in the vodka. Cover the container tightly and put in a cool dark place for 2 months.
- Stain the vodka. Put the water and sugar in a saucepan, bring to a boil and remove from heat. Stir well, then return to heat and bring to a boil again. Cool.
- Combine the cooled syrup and the strained vodka. Put into a clean bottle, cork and leave in a cool, dark place for two months to mellow.
