Orange and black cardamom liqueur! The snowy background gives me ideas for alcoholic snowcones!

It’s been two weeks and I have full flavor. This is bomba and I will share the process and the recipe. Toast three pods of black cardamon and a tablespoon of black peppercorns until fragrant. Zest 10 navel oranges without any pith.Combine a cup of gran sugar with a pint of water, the zest and the spices. Steep on a low simmer for 10 mins. Combine with a pint and a half of vodka and let the flavors blend for a couple weeks.The result is a light menthol flavor from the black cardamom with a theme of oranges. It’s great both as an aperitif and a digestif. High-res

I woke up wondering this morning: If I were a cube of horseradish in a bottle of vodka, would I try to escape so eagerly? Russian Khren vodka, for Bloody Mary’s and sipping (at Rockefeller State Park Preserve)

Today I learned that one week is sufficient time for three oz of horseradish to infuse a liter / quart of vodka with a pleasant amount of flavor. Tomorrow morning feels like a bloody mary kinda morning! Now, what to do with the cubes of horseradish… 
The drink tastes very soothing to me, calling back sweet (though very fuzzy) memories at Mari Vanna!  High-res
